What is Redistricting?

Redistricting is the process of redrawing the geographical boundaries that correspond to certain elected offices to account for changes in population. For example, all US House Representatives represent specific geographical areas of a state. This is the same for state legislators and many local elected officials. As populations change across districts they must be redrawn to provide for an equal population across all districts (one person, one vote)
