As the 2021-2022 redistricting round approaches, it's inevitable that conversations about House, legislative, and gubernatorial elections will touch on redistricting and speculation about what a district will look like in the future or what impact an election result will have on districts.

People (myself included) enjoy linking to maps online or trying different ideas with tools like DRA and Moon Duchin's app. However, it's easy for maps to dominate a thread as people debate each other's maps and put up their own which is what the Geography forum is for.

To balance the need to discuss redistricting's impact on elections without becoming a duplicate redistricting forum, let's try these guidelines:

These posts fit the forum and will not be moved or moderated on their own:
  • Posts talking about redistricting and the future of a district as they relate to an upcoming election
  • Maps of the existing district and its past performance (e.g., Miles's maps from twitter)

These posts belong to the Geography forum:
  • Individually created maps and speculative maps
  • Comments on someone's speculative maps

Let's give this a go and see how it works.

I expect Rhode Island to be reduced to one at-large congressional district.
