For now I'm going to give you
- A comparison of the 2012 Alaska Interim Plan (Amended Proclamation Plan) used for the 2012 election and the map the Board approved in concept Sunday for the 2014 election.
- A comparison of the 2012 Anchorage map and the Board's approved concept map for Anchorage. I also added the Calista Option 4 plan - developed by the Calista Corporation and which the Board used as a starting point.

2012 Anchorage Election Map
The Two Alaska maps - 2012 election map and the new map for 2014. (The Board still has to finally adopt this and then it has to survive any court challenges.)
And here's a comparison of the 2012 and proposed 2014 Anchorage maps. And the Calista Option 4 map that the Board used as a starting point.

One thing I see that appears to be significant are the Senate pairings. In 2012 Bettye Davis was put into a new Senate district (M) had an Anchorage house district (25) and an Eagle River house district (26.) This time it looks like both Eagle River districts are paired to make a Senate seat. Does this mean that Fred Dyson (R) will be running against Anna Fairclough (R)? I'm not sure, but it's possible.
Also, Cathy Geisel's (R) Senate district included a South Anchorage house district a North Kenai house district. Now the South Anchorage district is paired with a Muldoon house district.
Those are some obvious changes. Given how many Republicans are in the Alaska House and Senate, it would be hard to make changes without impacting Republicans.
Here's the page with the old maps - there are separate maps for different parts of the state in great detail.
