A proposed congressional redistricting plan that would split Douglas County failed to overcome a filibuster in Nebraska's Unicameral. The Legislature's Redistricting Committee must now decide whether to adopt a proposal by state Sen. Justin Wayne, a Democrat, or to draw new maps altogether.
Five of the Nebraska Legislature Redistricting Committee's nine members voted to move forward with the Republican-drawn congressional map that splits Douglas County (home of Nebraska's "blue dot" that awarded one electoral college vote to Obama in 2008 and to Biden in 2020).
Who controls redistricting in Nebraska 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.
