REDISRICING IN AMERICA 
 A State-by-State Analysis 
This Rose Institute report surveys the legislative andcongressional redistricting process in each of the 50 states.
It nds that state legislative redistricting systems vary
widely, while congressional redistricting has less state-by-
state variation. As additional states consider reformingtheir own redistricting systems, it is important to be aware
of the variety of redistricting options. With the 2010 censusand 2011 redistricting cycle beginning, observers will have
an opportunity to study the success of each model withgreat precision. The majority of states have implementedno redistricting reforms. Others have adopted “reformed”systems that allow continued legislative control of the process.The following is a comprehensive state-by-state review of every system used by the 50 states, with a particular focus
on the states that have adopted non-legislative redistricting
systems.
