Detailed Redistricting Maps and Post Plan Public Hearing Schedule

I'm in Chicago and don't have time at the moment to look at these carefully, but I did get a message saying they have posted detailed maps.  So you can look now to see where you district has ended up in the draft plan.  Remember - this is the proposed, not the final plan.  So check out what they did in case you have issues.   In the Board's Plan 1, my census block has been carved out of my old district 24 and put into another district.  I have to check on the other one.

Board Posts Detailed District and Regional Maps for Draft Redistricting Plans 

Anchorage, AK - Today, the Alaska Redistricting Board has posted detailed maps for each of the Board's draft redistricting plans that were adopted on April 13, 2011. 

Maps for House Districts and major regions of the state for both "Board Option 1" and "Board Option 2" are available for download at http://www.akredistricting.org.

Additional maps, data, reports, plans submitted by the public and other materials will be posted to the Alaska Redistricting Board website by staff over the course of the redistricting process, which will culminate with the adoption of a final plan in mid-June of this year. 


They've also posted a schedule of public hearings, again starting in Anchorage.  I won't be back for that one, so the rest of you should go.

The morning session will be reserved for presentations of plans and plan revisions by members of the public.

  1. That the board somehow thinks the communities of Ester, Fox and Goldstream Valley are somehow "contiguous and compact territory" with Holy Cross, Kaltag, Fort Yukon et al - and that these and other Interior villages together with the Fairbanks suburbs comprise a "relatively integrated socio-economic area" displays either profound ignorance and/or betrays a political bias for gerrymandering.
    Native Alaskans will not benefit, and the two Democrats will also lose in this new proposed 6-C District.
