Every 10 years, following the U.S Census, Congressional and Legislative districts are redrawn to respond to population shifts. The Foundation for the Future Redistricting Resource Center is dedicated to helping Democratic leaders in each state utilize the best data and technology to ensure this process runs as smoothly and fairly as possible.
Whether your state is gaining or losing population, shifting people from rural to urban areas, or hasn’t changed much at all, the battle to draw electoral districts will be fierce. Moving district lines from one side of the street to the other side can be the difference between a solidly performing district…and one that has to be fought over every cycle.
The Foundation for the Future has assembled the top experts in America to help Democrats get organized for the fight of the decade; the fight that will determine Democratic fortunes in your state and in Washington, D.C. for years to come: Redistricting!
Whether you just need a sounding board for your redistricting plans or need an expert to walk you through each step of the redistricting process, the Foundation for the Future is here to assist you.
Some of the answers to your questions can be found here on the Redistricting Resource Center. The rest of your questions can be answered by one of our strategists, analysts, demographers, cartographers, or legal scholars. Don’t try to reach for redistricting answers without reaching out to us.
