Ward Maps

View Potential Ward Maps & Engage Below

Each posted ward map is intended to pass legal muster and balance different criteria including: 

Equal Population | Ward populations should be roughly equal in number.

Contiguity | Every part of the ward must be reachable from every other part without crossing the ward boundary.

Compactness | Every ward should have a regular shape with constituents living relatively close to each other.

Minority Voting Power |  Minority voting power should be preserved. This means that minority groups should have an effective opportunity to win a certain number of wards based on the region's total population.

Preservation of Existing Boundaries | Communities of interest and political and geographic boundaries should be preserved where possible.
