In 26 states, the legislature draws the boundaries on its own. In five states, the legislature creates the districts with advice from a non-political commission. Six others have an independent commission do the redistricting. In three states, the legislature draws the boundaries, but a commission takes over if lawmakers can't agree. Three states give the power to a commission composed of politicians or political appointees. Seven states have just one congressional district, so they have no congressional redistricting.
