I decided to try Dave's application and as a beginner I started with something easier. I tried to make a (relatively) Democratic seat in uber-Republican Idaho. I have no clue about exact partisan numbers so I'd be happy if anybody wants to chime in and tweak the boundaries.

Please, be kind. Smiley

I made this one a while back:



The actual map is probably not going to change much (if at all); the state has a bipartisan commission and prevents excessive county-splitting and whatnot. Not that the Republicans are hindered by that.

That's a pretty horrible map. I tried to keep county splits at a minimum level. I guess that my 1st district will be at least swing/lean Republican.

Only realistic chance for a more Democratic 1st district, honestly, is if they decide to place all of Boise in it. The eastern half of the city is where the Democrats live, which is currently in the 2nd.

You left the north part of Blaine County, the most Democratic part, out of your Democratic district...

Incidentally, looks from the map and the pop. estimates as if the 1st will lose more of Boise.

Thanks. Any estimates about how it voted in 2008?

For what it's worth, this D-favorable map has no county splits and a deviation of only 75 (ID-01 is +75, ID-02 is -75).

That map goes through some serious Mormon country.

I guess that's much better. Thanks for the advice guys. Smiley

The Dem district looks actually like a mini-Idaho.
And the two districts have exactly the same population.

According to RRH, this map has been agreed upon by both parties for the two CD's.  Yawn.

Not that it matters, but it looks like it drops ID-02's McCain performance by about 0.6-0.7%.

Idaho won't be interesting until it gets its third seat next time around and even then it is likely to be relatively boring.

I think it'd be even more boring with three seats... one for Boise, one going up the panhandle, and one for the east. It'll only be interesting if they get the third seat but still insist on splitting the Boise area between districts.

I think anything but a Boise split would have been too shocking for the good folks of ID.
