Detailed State Senate District Data

    Note: this diary was originally posted by TXObserver over at SwingStateProject, and I felt that because it was relevant I would cross-post it here. TXObserver compiled Obama/McCain numbers for the senate districts under the Howell plan (the official text of the plan only provides McDonnell/Deeds numbers). The diary contains a .drf file of the districts that can be used in Dave’s Redistricting App. For those that don’t know, Dave’s Redistricting App is a free web-based application that allows you to draw your own redistricting maps, complete with census data. -drobertson

    There was a request for the .drf file that I created for the Howell proposal of the VA State Senate, so why not make a diary.

    For the .drf file visit: http://www.fileserve.com/file/…

    Caution: the Howell plan splits precincts, which I don’t think Dave’s App allows for. On some districts, it’s a judgement call, like on the borders of the 15th & 20th districts or the 7th & 14th districts. The non-ability to split precincts is also why districts will have the variances in population.

    And yes, the numbers correspond to the Howell numbers, i.e. District 1 below is District 1 in the Howell plan.
