The idea of a balanced and fair redistricting commission has failed to make the November ballot after a number of legal steps.
U.S. Supreme Court on Aug. 11 stayed a judge’s order that allowed more time to collect signatures. However, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said it was clear the clock was going to run out. The Court said if the pandemic continues there may be more allowances in the future.
But for now, the process remains the same: The Legislature and the governor, meaning that Democrats will likely have full control over the redistricting process next year after the 2020 Census is finished.
