Minnesota

Minnesota’s new district lines were adopted by a panel of state court judges appointed by the Minnesota Supreme Court. Because of the state’s politically-divided government, in which Democrats control the governorship and the state House, and Republicans control the state Senate, the state branches were unable to pass new redistricting maps. As a result of this failure to agree on new districting plans ahead of the 2022 elections, the judicial panel adopted new maps. This fall, NDRC is seeking to flip the state Senate and protect Democratic control of the governorship and state House.

How Our Fight Continues

Thanks to the grassroots movement for fair maps, we have maps in place that are far more fair than they would have been if Republicans had been allowed to gerrymander unchecked this past redistricting cycle. But if the last few years have shown us anything, it’s that our fight to protect free and fair elections is far from over. Redistricting has always been part of the larger fight to protect our democracy. The stakes are far too high to stand by the sidelines.
