A state-by-state overview of redistricting rules and partisan control would be super-duper-cool.

In some states, there are rules. In other states, there are no rules.

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.

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.

Dave's Redistricting App now has state plans for some states as DRF files!

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.)

Thanks, the gallery can be a bitch to search. If ther is any way to display all submissions from a single poster (other than yourself) I've never noticed it.

Incidentally, I think you got the old lines for RI and they moved the northwest corner township to CD2.

(ducks, runs, hides)

Yellow voted for John McCain by 114 votes. Blue is 30% Hispanic and 28% Black (36% Anglo).
Neither is quite at maxpack - had to introduce some slight compromises to keep the western remnant district contiguous.

What are the numbers for the red and purple districts?
Haven't saved it, but I recall that green, red and purple are eerily alike, not by design, in electoral figures though green is less white than the others (on account of Waterbury). Slightly more Democratic than the state, all of them.
