New Maps Show Districts with Closest Partisan Voter Registration

Ballotpedia and Moonshadow Mobile, Inc. have released a second round of Congressional and legislative district comparative maps for 2012 election coverage in 30 states.

Using proprietary technology and data supplied by Labels and Lists, Inc., Moonshadow has created maps comparing districts before and after the redistricting process, showing the old (2001) and new (2011) lines for U.S. Congressional districts as well as state legislative districts. The most recent round of maps highlights Congressional districts, state Senate districts and state House districts where the partisan registration difference between Democrats and Republicans is less than 10%.

Ballotpedia has incorporated these maps into their coverage of the statewide elections in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Washington.
