Analysis of Map-a-Thon's House District Competitiveness
The larger Map-a-Thon group decided in May & June of 2021, long before the maps were drawn, that it would not draw maps on the basis of partisan data. We have, however, included an analysis of the Map-a-Thon project's NH House Districts in the interest of transparency, completed after the mapping was complete. Now that it is built, the competitive district analysis can also quickly be applied to non Map-a-Thon maps, such as those being proposed by the NH House Special Committee on Redistricting. To measure competitiveness, we averaged the 2020 NH Executive Council and NH Senate election data to assess our NH House districts.
