Redistricting is the process by which new congressional and state legislative district boundaries are drawn. District lines are redrawn every 10 years following completion of the U. The federal government stipulates that districts must have nearly equal populations and must not discriminate on the basis of race or ethnicity. Redistricting is a fiercely contested issue, primarily due to gerrymandering—the practice of drawing district lines to favor one political party, individual or constituency over another.

In most states, the legislatures are primarily responsible for both congressional and state legislative redistricting. In Iowa, an advisory commission draws both congressional and state legislative district lines, with the state legislature retaining final authority. Redistricting plans are constantly challenged in the federal court system — sometimes even in the Supreme Court — on questions of whether partisan redistricting unfairly disadvantages others.
With the increase in polarization between Democrats and Republicans in Congress and many states, many also question the connection between redistricting and public policy outcomes in states where redistricting is a partisan process.
