The U.S. Census Bureau counts incarcerated people where they are confined not where they are from. Using these counts to draw state and local legislative districts enhances the weight of a vote cast by people who live near prisons at the expense of everyone else in the state or county.

Pennsylvania's redistricting commission took steps to address prison gerrymandering when it redrew state legislative lines after the 2020 Census, but it did not permanently solve the problem.

Pending legislation

  • HB 940 An act... "providing for residence of incarcerated individuals", introduced by Representatives McClinton, Schlossberg, Millard, Hill-Evans, Kinsey, Burgos, Bullock, Warren, Neilson, Fiedler, Kenyatta,Youngblood, Irvin, and Webster, March 25, 2019.
