Every 10 years the results of the nationwide census shows how population has shifted across the nation, so the geographical boundaries of Congressional districts often need to be redrawn to reflect the changes in population.
Gerrymandering is a process by which political parties lay out these new Congressional districts in order to concentrate their supporters geographically to help ensure victory.
Some states have set up independent commissions to oversee the process, but many states have not. In many states, the redrawing of Congressional districts is overseen by the state legislature.
The vast majority of people in the United States oppose the practice of partisan gerrymandering, but yet, it continues.

The 2020 census will require that many of the Congressional districts across the country will be redrawn. Due to shifts in population, a number of states will lose seats in Congress and a number of states will gain seats.
It is estimated that seven states [Texas (3), Florida (2), Arizona (1), Colorado (1), Montana (1), North Carolina (1) and Oregon (1)] will gain a total of 10 additional seats in the House of Representatives.
It is also estimated that nine states [New York (2), California (1), Illinois (1), Michigan (1), Minnesota (1), Ohio (1), Pennsylvania (1), Rhode Island (1) and West Virginia (1)] will lose a total of 10 seats in the House of Representatives.
ALL of the Congressional districts will have to be redrawn before the 2022 election in the states that gain or lose a seat in the House of Representatives. This includes a majority of the districts in the entire country.
The 2022 election offers an absolutely phenomenal opportunity for "We The People" to take back control of our government.
