Here is maps of the us with all states done with non partisan commissions.

Arkansas

A 3-1 map republican map in normal years, could be up to a 3-1 democratic map in a democratic wave like in 2006




Mississippi

A 3-1 map.

What if in 2012, in this debate at the one minute mark, Governor Rick Perry had hit Governor Romney?  What would had happened, would the race had changed completely?  Find out in my new tl, based on one I had at one time, "The Punch Watched Around The World."

Mississippi wasn't a partisan gerrymander.

Also, that Arkansas map feels wrong in many places.

I wanted to do states first that are not as gerrymandered as others.  Arkansas is something that some of the stupider commissions would do.  I could improve it some, but it is really puts groups of people together  pretty well.

Districts 1 and 2 seem reasonable to me, but why are 3 and 4 split north/south rather than east/west?

Wouldn't something like this make more sense for AR?

Also, I will be posting some maps that are really partisan, the name has been changed to reflect that

Here was a similar idea with whole counties, but aimed to get a smaller deviation. The thread may also be of assistance since it includes a number of states done with the same goal.




CD 1: -136
CD 2: +167
CD 3: +138
CD 4: -169

av deviation 153
range 337 = 0.046%
