2010 Redistricting Changes:
Redistricting Process: Control of the congressional and state legislative redistricting system in Alabama is currently held by the legislature. A redistricting committee of 22 commissioners is formed after each census by the ruling state party, with 11 members drawn from the House and 11 from the Senate. While the committee is nominally bipartisan (that is, it includes at least one opposition member), there are no further specifications as to the composition of the committee in the state constitution. The governor retains veto power over any redistricting bill. Proposals to change the redistricting system have been discussed but not introduced.
Governor: Republican Robert Bentley
Legislature: Republicans control both chambers.
Number of Congressional Seats in 2011: 7 (no change from 2010)
