In the United States, the House of Representatives is reapportioned once every 10 years following the census.

Why are some states worth more electoral votes?

Electoral votes come from the total number of Representatives in congress from each state. The number of Representatives is determined every 10 years by census and then each state configures districts for the Representatives. Often the legislature of states tries to set up a district as all democratic or all republican. This is called jerrymandering and often the new districts take on strange boundary lines.

Is federal congressional districts smaller than State legislative districts?

Not usually. Federal representatives will often cover the area of multiple local representatives. Federal representatives cover a population of roughly 700,000 while the idea of state legislatures is to have even smaller populations represented by a single state legislator. California for example has 53 US House Representatives (and 53 districts) while the Assembly (the state legislature of California) has 80 members (and 80 districts of smaller populations.

Why are some districts redrawn after a census?

why are some districts redrawn after a census? Districts are re-drawn for two reasons. The first is if population shifts change the number of Congressional representatives for a state. If the population decreases sufficiently enough relative to other states (which may mean its population has grown, but not as rapidly as other states) or if it increases sufficiently compared to other states, then it may lose or gain one or more representatives in Congress. If that happens the state's area is re-divided into the correct number of districts, with an attempt made to keep the populations of the districts fairly even. But re-districting can be done every 10 years following the Federal census, and often (not always) the legislative body within the state has the power to draw district boundaries. Whatever party is in power may choose to re-draw boundaries to make their position better by increasing the number of "safe" districts (or de-stabilizing the district of a strong opponent). "Gerrymandering" has a very long and "distinguished" history.
