Every 10 years, states redraw the boundaries of their congressional districts to reflect new population counts from the census. In this year’s midterm elections, candidates will be running in these newly redrawn districts. US law requires that each of the 435 districts in the House of Representatives have the same number of people, which means 13 states are gaining or losing seats in Congress depending on their state’s population change between 2010 and 2020.
