In the list of districts, the first option is to unassign precincts. Click on that, and then color the precincts you want removed the same way you color them to add them to a district.

I would like to see the next version of the App have voter registration totals, at least for voting precincts.  I know that the data is out there, if he could just compile it together, it would make the redistricting process even better.

Partisan data for Colorado has been added.

Edit: Looks off, though. Might be Kerry/Bush numbers, but the totals don't line up with the Atlas numbers.

It's the average of all statewide races in 2010 though I have no clue how the gubernatorial one was handled, maybe Tancredo + Maes was added for the Rep figures?

Bennet vs. Buck is probably a better measure of the state's partisanship than the 2008 numbers, so it's not entirely worthless. Still I'd like a little clarification of the algorithms used because of the gubernatorial thing mentioned, Hickenlooper vs. Maes + Tancredo isn't a bad measure but I'd like some confirmation that's what was averaged.

The Republicans won all the other races though, AG with 57-43, Treasurer by about 2 points, and Sec of State with barely over 50% but by 7 points thanks to a Constitution Party candidate (I suspect just the two party numbers are averaged), so it's not surprising the numbers are slightly GOP-leaning. Probably shift them two points to the Democrats to get a more accurate number.

The partisan numbers are probably most useful when used to compare new districts with old ones.  I posted numbers for a few old districts in the CO redistricting thread.

2008 election data has been added for Kansas, Mississippi, Vermont, and Wyoming. Exciting, I know.

How many Obama LDs can be drawn in Wyoming? It has 30.

From what I can tell only 3: One in Cheyenne (barely), one in Laramie and one in Teton County.

57% Dem district in Kansas by removing the more Republican parts in Johnson and adding Topeka to the 3rd.

From what I can tell only 3: One in Cheyenne (barely), one in Laramie and one in Teton County.

I got five (four that are barely Obama districts) by cutting Laramie in half and stringing a district from the Indian reservation in Freemont County to Teton County.

Also, Wyoming has 60 LDs, not 30. 30 SDs, 60 HDs. And a nesting requirement (well, not sure if it's a requirement, but they do it anyways.) And a bizarre numbering scheme that doesn't reflect that in the slightest.

Two Democratic districts in Kansas. You could probably do without the southeastern leg entirely as the 2nd is 52.9% Obama, but I was happy to finally have the populations right. (I still have it open... I think I'll do it.) I'm pretty sure you can't do it without Wichita, though maybe it's just about barely possible on a super-contorted map. The third district is 49.5-49.1 Dem.

Much better.



Still 52.6%. 3rd now at 49.9%.

And you only had to go from Missouri to half-way to Colorado.

How is that any worse than the Republican map, which goes from Missouri all the way to Colorado (aside from the obvious non-compactness)?

I did that, but I didn't have to, as you can see in the 2nd map below. Smiley Happened because I was drawing from a 2nd district basis, of course.
Also, of course, the first district still goes all the way to Missouri in these maps.

But it doesn't reach Colorado in those maps.
