Michigan's gerrymandered electoral map drawn up after the 2010 redistricting was just found unconstitutional, joining Pennsylvania. There is also a current supreme court case regarding the gerrymandered maps of North Carolina and Maryland.

What states will have different maps from those used in the 2016 elections? And which ones may be redrawn pending ongoing litigation?

Looks like as of 5/3/2019 Ohio joins the list

  • Doesn't the US census get factored into redrawing electoral maps? If so, wouldn't the answer be all of them? – Denis de Bernardy Apr 26 at 20:29

    @DenisdeBernardy But the US census results from 2020 won’t be used to draw the maps for the November 2020 election. The census will begin in April 2020, but the redistricting results won’t be sent to the states until March 2021. – jeffronicus Apr 26 at 21:53
  • It seems to me you're asking two different questions. And your 2nd question isn't terribly good, because legal precedents may lead to cases that aren't currently "pending ongoing litigation". According to an opinion in the Atlantic "After 2021, such cases could include Republican-controlled Florida and Georgia, as well as states under possible Democratic control, such as Minnesota and Virginia." theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/03/… – Fizz Apr 29 at 13:26

If the supreme court finds against NC and MD, then potentially any state that has maps drawn under similar conditions as those of NC and MD could be deemed unconstitutional. It should be pointed out that redistricting is based of the Census cycle (occures every year ending in Zero (0)) so every state in the union will face redistricting some time after the Presidential Elections in 2020, but before the 2022 mid-terms.

    I think the questioner really wants to know which are the States " that has maps drawn under similar conditions"? – Jontia Apr 26 at 20:41
