I know the article says 10 states have finalized their new maps, now there are 6 states that have only one representative. So the actual number is 16 done, 34 to go. Totals on the gerrymandering was is Dem plus 5, Rep plus 3, so far a net gain of 4 for the Democrats.

The latest with redistricting
NOV. 4, 2021

Ten states have now finalized their redrawn congressional maps for the 2020s — most recently Alabama and North Carolina (though both will face lawsuits alleging they are racial gerrymanders).

At this point, Democrats have gained five seats nationally from the redistricting process, Republicans have gained three, and the number of competitive seats has dropped by four. But while it appears as though Democrats have had the upper hand in redistricting so far, a lot of that advantage is thanks to Texas Republicans giving Democratic incumbents safer districts in exchange for shoring up their own seats. Republicans also control the redrawing of many more districts than Democrats, so that Democratic net gain isn’t likely to last long. We’ve already seen, for instance, Republicans in North Carolina and Ohio pass or propose maps in recent days that are highly biased toward the GOP according to various fairness metrics.

There are also a few other states close to finalizing their congressional maps. Late on Oct. 28, the Illinois legislature passed a proposed congressional map that is heavily biased toward Democrats, creating 13 blue seats, three red seats and just one competitive seat. The same evening, the Iowa legislature passed the second congressional-map proposal from the nonpartisan Legislative Services Agency; that map is a lot more competitive than Illinois’s, with two swing seats, one slightly Republican-leaning seat and one safe Republican seat.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
