What is redistricting?


  • In December 2020, the Census Bureau delivers apportionment counts to the President and Congress and then the states use this information to redistrict.
  •  Congressional, state legislative and municipal district boundaries are drawn every ten years following completion of the U.S. Census to ensure that districts have about the same number of people.
  •  In Nebraska, the State Legislature is currently responsible for redrawing district lines.
  •  Other states use independent political commissions.
