A growing number of states will be using special commissions to redraw congressional and state legislative districts after the 2020 census.

The task of redistricting has traditionally been performed by state lawmakers and governors.

But over the past decade, more states have adopted measures intended to reduce the potential for partisan gerrymandering.

The latest could be Virginia, where only a final House vote is needed to place a constitutional amendment on the November ballot to create a bipartisan redistricting commission.

That comes after voters in five other states approved ballot measures in 2018 that revamped their redistricting processes.
