On 10/05/23, an Alabama Supreme Court decision redrew congressional voting maps to more fairly represent Black voters.

Local Democrats are competing for AL-02. AL-07 continues to be held by Rep. Terri Sewell (D).

On 12/12/23, a New York Supreme Court decision in favor of Democrats will require the State to redraw its congressional map.

NY Dems will likely be looking to flip 2-6 seats as a result.

On 02/19/24, Governor Tony Evers signed new redistricting legislation into law for fair maps in Wisconsin.

Gov Evers on Twitter: "Wisconsin, for the first time in over a decade, we will not have some of the most gerrymandered maps in America.".

On 05/15/24, the Supreme Court allowed Louisiana to proceed with a congressional map that will give Black voters the majority in two districts.

This will likely enable Democrats to pick up an extra House seat as Louisiana has 1 Democrat elected to the House currently.

Seriously though, what is redistricting?

From Asian Americans Advancing Justice:

"Redistricting is the redrawing of political district lines by governments.

Census data are collected every 10 years and are used to draw new maps to account for the ways that populations have changed and moved across states and districts."

States that gained or lost a Congressional seat (or two) with the release of the 2020 census data.

There are always 435 House of Representatives members. Here's how the 2020 census will rebalance the House:


California, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia


Colorado, Florida, Oregon, Montana, North Carolina
