How the division could shift political power

The US Census Bureau published allocation counts on April 26, 2021, thus initiating what is certainly a turbulent restructuring process.

The split refers to the process of dividing the 435 seats in the House of Representatives across all 50 states based on the population determined by the 2020 census. This only happens once every 10 years and has the potential to reshape policy. After the allocation numbers have been determined, states will begin the restructuring process for redesigning congressional and legislative districts. However, more precise data will not be available until later this summer. The redistribution will affect almost everyone in the country.

The country’s population grew from approximately 309 million to 331 million – the slowest rate of growth the nation has seen since 1940. States’ gains and losses for the next decade were less than most observers expected.
