    The Official U.S. Census happens every ten years, so states adjust and redraw boundaries after the Census numbers come out (both of these things are required by the U.S. Constitution).

    If you want examples of gerrymandering, you'll need to look at what happened after the censuses of 2010, 2000, 1990, etc. (Yes, there was a gerrymander in Texas between 2000 and 2010, but that usually doesn't happen in other states.)

    But the angle said to them, "Do not be Alfred. A sailor has been born to you"
