Browsing: Redistricting

Welcome to a new series here on Elections Daily! Each week, I’ll be taking a look at a possible sleeper race in the 2020 elections – one that may be more competitive than expected. Today, we’re looking towards the New York exurbs in NY-18, an Obama-Trump district in upstate New York.

Despite the recent redraw of North Carolina’s congressional maps, the state remains gerrymandered to a degree and the maps will again have to be redrawn in a few years. Using the 2016 Voting District lines from Dave’s Redistricting App, I’ve drawn a map that could be used as a baseline for the 2022 redraw.
