There is a lot of uncertainty around the 2022 elections at this time. Check back regularly for updates as they become available.
Texas gained 2 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, based on the 2020 Census and our increase in population since 2010. The Texas Legislature redrew the district lines, which determined what district you live in, and what candidate(s) you’ll be able to vote for.
The Texas Legislature, in their third Special Session, created the new maps. To say that this is a political, partisan process would be an understatement. Republicans have a majority in both the House and Senate in Austin. They drew the maps to ensure the election of as many Republicans as possible. District 24 (and many others) was definitely gerrymandered in the process of redistricting. To prevent this practice in the future, I would support an Independent Redistricting Commission.
The reality is that many districts were carved up beyond recognition. We now must face this head-on and move forward.
