A critical process for our democracy
Redistricting is the process by which new district lines are drawn based upon how many congressional seats each state has been apportioned following a census. Redistricting has been troubled historically, mainly by a process of drawing the lines to favor a particular group in a process called gerrymandering. Each state, including Minnesota, decides the way in which redistricting occurs for that state as long as it adheres to national redistricting law.
