Every ten years, Maryland’s Congressional and state legislative districts get reshaped to account for population changes registered in the U.S. Census. Governor O’Malley’s Redistricting Advisory Committee has been holding public hearings over the last month or so to get citizen input.

In mid-October, the General Assembly will convene a session to redraw the Congressional districts. How might those districts change? And what’s at stake for Maryland’s residents?

Nathan Sterner asks Todd Eberly, assistant professor of political science and public policy at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, and Don Norris, chair of the Department of Public Policy at UMBC.
