Redistrictingonline.org is a nonpartisan online resource and knowledge center for redistricting professionals, academics, attorneys, and the general public. The goal of our editorial team is to make the arcane subject of redistricting less so by providing comprehensive information at a single, easily accessible source and promoting more quality discussion, analysis, and scholarly debate on the many topics that the once-a-decade redistricting process generates.
RedistrictingOnline.org aims to offer a coherent picture of the ever-evolving redistricting process by providing digestible overviews of the policies, technologies, legal cases and procedure involved in redistricting. In addition, the site will feature in-depth insight and analysis from the redistricting professionals and academics with first-hand experience in redistricting and the litigation that often follows.
Whether you are just learning about redistricting or are looking to get more involved and learn more about the process, you will want to start with our general background articles on redistricting. Here, in our growing library you will find the basics about redistricting law, redistricting procedure, data and technology and other helpful tools to build on your knowledge. Legislator and Staff Page offers reference materials, technical guidance, and updated news and events relevant to the people who actually draw the lines.
Legal professionals involved in redistricting litigation, law students and professors, or anyone interested in the details of redistricting law will find the Redistricting for Attorneys section of the site extremely helpful. Beginning with the 2010 round of redistricting across the states, Redistrictingonline.org will track all current redistricting litigation initiated in federal courts. We will also feature select state lawsuits as well as catalog significant past decisions that have affected redistricting. Redistricting Policy and Research section focuses on developing issues by maintaining a catalog of current scholarly articles on various redistricting related topics and by providing a platform for scholarly debate and dialogue within the redistricting community.
