Every ten years, the US Constitution requires that a census be taken and be used to reapportion voters into Congressional, state and local districts. The 2020 Census results will be available by May 2021, and the redistricting in Maryland must be completed by early 2022. The LWVMD and LWVUS have strong and long-held positions for how to draw People-Powered Fair Maps. The Maryland General Assembly will work on redistricting after their 2021 Session, probably in a Special 2021 Session. The League is active now and is watching the process closely.
To learn more and how you can help Maryland get Fair Maps for the next decade, please read the League's Issue Paper!
