What is redistricting?
Redistricting is the process of redrawing the boundaries of election districts to ensure that the people of each district are equally represented.
Redistricting is done in the United States after the completion of Congressional reapportionment, which decides how many seats each state has in the 435 member House of Representatives. Reapportionment happens following the Decennial Census.
