Best Practices for Legislator-Drawn Maps

We’ll discuss the best practices used by states still using legislator-drawn maps, including the collecting and using communities of interest data, and nationally-recognized standards for mapping criteria. We’re pleased to have with us one the nation’s leading experts on redistricting policy, Yurij Rudensky of NYU’s Brennan Center, to lead this presentation.

Discussion of Communities of Interest, Criteria & Software Technology

We’ll also have a discussion and demonstration on how communities of interest data and criteria are applied to create fair maps, using modern software. This will also include a discussion on how mapping software can also be used to create unfair maps, how to analyze maps, and what questions to ask.

Demonstration of Map-a-Thon's Mapping Project by Our Tech Team

Finally, the technical team of engineers, GIS mapping experts and database specialists from the Map-a-Thon citizen mapping project here in New Hampshire will share what we’ve learned from our NH Communities of Interest Survey, our mapping criteria developed with our full Map-a-Thon team of over 200 NH citizens from throughout NH, and how our mapping software and process will work, given New Hampshire's Constitutional requirements.

We hope you’ll join us for this informative conversation and demonstration via Zoom on July 26 at 4 p.m.

Brian Beihl, Deputy Director, Open Democracy
