Is there any point to drawing an Arizona map in DRA, or is the population balance in Maricopa county so out of whack that its pointless?
Yeah. Pinal, too - on DRA it looks like the first can/should drop all of Casas Grandes. Not sure that will work in practice, the monster growth is going to have been mostly in the sixth district portion.
Then again... with Arizona's massive overestimate of their growth, it's reasonable to expect the overestimate to be concentrated in the massive growth parts too, ie for Maricopa to have fewer people in relation to the rest of the state than the estimates claim.
Anyways, the biggest growth in Maricopa is on the western and eastern ends. That probably means the 2nd and 6th retreat outwards, and the shed areas plus 3rd and 5th are drawn into three new districts, with the 4th mostly left alone. The 2nd might also pick up La Paz County from the 7th.



That's kind of what I figured would happen as well, with the 5th (which covers Tempe and Scottsdale) essentially split into 2.

I'm guessing that Schweikert would run in what would be a fairly heavy Republican 9th (the Scottsdale district where he lives). The new 5th would be anchored in Tempe and Pinal county, probably would be swingy at a guess, but I believe Tempe is Dem leaning.

Moderator's note:

I saw that a thread on CO-7 redistricting was transferred to this board from Congressional elections. In order to keep some sanity while tracking everyone's redistricting ideas, I merged it into the existing CO thread. Feel free to check the OP in this thread to find links to all the state threads that have been started on the board. If you start one that doesn't exist yet, I'll link it up as well.

I just made my first map in DRAv2. I have no idea how to get the PVI, though.
I also would like to know how to get an image version.

Does anyone know where we can go to find the newly drawn congressional maps? Like, is there one big website anywhere that shows them? I realize not all states have made their maps, but for the ones that have, just so we can see the new congressional districts? Thanks Smiley

The state redistricting pages on Ballotpedia are pretty comprehensive.

Utah redistricting:

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/politics/51984561-90/county-democratic-senate-lake.html.csp


Richfield • Republicans proposed Friday two redistricting plans that could further reduce the number of already far-outnumbered Democrats in Utah’s Legislature and congressional delegation.

Two Democratic seats in the state Senate would likely disappear under a proposal unveiled by Senate President Michael Waddoups, R-Taylorsville, at hearings of the Legislature’s Redistricting Committee in Richfield and Ephraim. Republicans already hold a 22-7 edge in the Senate.

Republicans also floated a second major proposal to divide Salt Lake County among all four new U.S. House districts, which would dilute Democratic votes in their one stronghold in the state. That could make it more difficult to re-elect Democrat Rep. Jim Matheson if he runs again for the House.

Since there's a lot of talk about lawsuits, I thought a look back at 2000's lawsuits might be informative. Here's a very exhaustive list of cases last time around.

Can't seem to find a Mississippi thread, can't be bothered to start one. For your viewing enjoyment only, not to be taken as a serious suggestion.

Homosexuals want VRA districts.

"Communities of interest such as Latinos and African-Americans are protected to ensure proper representation," said Mario Guerrero, government affairs director for Equality California, a gay advocacy group. "We want the same opportunity to elect representatives from our community."

There may be no obvious answer to this given that the world was much less internet-based in previous rounds, but does anyone have any idea when mainstream sources like National Journal or even just Wikipedia will start putting up pages with demographics, PVI etc. about the new districts? Will they wait until the whole country's finished?

Given the obsessiveness of Wikipedia contributors, I'm a little surprised for example that the new districts don't seem to have their own Wikipedia pages even in states like Arkansas where the process is basically finished.

I don't think there are enough Gays in San Francisco to create a majority district for them. Maybe if it was entirely centered in the Castro District, but that wouldn't exactly be a large enough number of constituents.

Has anyone completed a nationwide map of congressional districts? The maps I've seen are only statewide. I'm sure the map will come soon enough if it hasn't already.

Also, there must be a completed version of this one (2008 presidential by new CDs) somewhere, but you get all the info from these two

Actually, looking at it I think that's not the final Kansas map in either, but it's a minor alteration (the urban KC district goes a little less far to the west, a little further to the south instead.)

The gallery can be searched by keywords, but many of the maps users have posted are on other websites. Even those that have used the gallery often don't use keywords. For instance everyone of my maps has a keyword of redistricting and the name of the state. But as you note, I didn't include my name as a keyword so you can't search on that.

I bet those same gay anti semites would be the strongest opposition to a Jewish congressional district in the only area it's possible to do so Southern Brooklyn.  (could be a 60%+ McCain seat)
