One person, one vote is the foundational principle of our democracy, yet achieving this vision is no simple feat. Following the completion of the Census, states use data to revisit (and usually redraw) their district maps to meet strict requirements for population equality and voting rights protections. Known as redistricting, this process impacts where (and who) falls within a district, meaning it can drastically change who represents a district and the makeup of the legislative body as a whole.
