The latest in Minnesota

Feb. 15, 2022

On Feb. 15, a panel appointed by the Minnesota Supreme Court unveiled the state’s new congressional map for the next 10 years. The new map is nearly identical in competitiveness to the old map, with four Republican-leaning seats, three Democratic-leaning seats and one highly competitive seat.

Because neither party had full control over Minnesota’s redistricting process — Democrats control the state House and governorship, Republicans the state Senate — the state did not pass a map through the usual legislative process, prompting the judiciary to step in. This continued a long-running pattern of court-drawn maps in Minnesota, as a federal or state court has decided the congressional lines in each post-decennial census redistricting cycle after 1980, with state court-appointed panels doing the work after the 1990, 2000 and 2010 censuses.

Who controls redistricting in Minnesota right now?
Neither party fully controls the congressional redistricting process. New maps are drawn and passed by the split-party state legislature and signed into law by the Democratic governor.
