The latest in Indiana

Oct. 4, 2021

On Oct. 4, Gov. Eric Holcomb signed a bill into law that redraws the state’s congressional maps. The new map, drawn by Republicans, is expected to allow the GOP to maintain its 7-2 seat majority in the state.

Democrats fought against the map, specifically because the approved proposal now makes the 5th Congressional District, represented by Republican Victoria Spartz, much safer for the GOP and effectively eliminates competitive congressional districts in the state. But despite pushback from the public and Indiana Democrats, the state’s newest maps easily passed thanks to Republicans controlling the House, Senate and governorship.

Who controls redistricting in Indiana in 2021?
Republicans fully control the congressional redistricting process. New maps are drawn and passed by the Republican state legislature and signed into law by the Republican governor. If the legislature fails to pass a map, redistricting falls to a partisan commission made up of Republican state legislators.
