Who controls redistricting in Maine in 2021?
Neither party fully controls the congressional redistricting process. New maps are drawn by a bipartisan commission made up of state legislators and citizens, but the Democratic state legislature can modify or reject the commission's proposals. The final map must be passed by two-thirds of each chamber and signed into law by the Democratic governor.
