Congressional redistricting has now been completed in 31 states. As a result of the slow moving process, lawsuits and other issues, candidate filing dates and primary election dates will likely be affected (dates have already been adjusted in Illinois).
As of today, here is the current status for congressional redistricting:
- 34 states have completed the process and this includes the 7 at-large states.
- 2 additional states are waiting for pre-clearance from the DOJ due to the Voting Rights Act of 1965 – CA & MI.
- 2 additional states, CT & MN have failed to complete the process and will have the maps drawn in court.
- 2 states have significant litigation issues in state or federal court to completing the process – CT & TX.
- 5 states have yet to complete the process and will still need to receive VRA pre-clearance – AZ, FL, NH, NY & VA. Maps have been introduced in AZ, FL & VA.
- 5 states have yet to complete the process, but do not need to receive VRA pre-clearance – KS, KY, RI, TN & WA. Maps have been introduced in KY, RI, TN & WA.
