Welcome to a project working to draw fair voting district maps for New Hampshire! The Map-a-Thon is supported by a coalition of NH groups who work for fair voting maps, including Granite State Progress, the League of Women Voters of NH, Open Democacy, Open Democracy Teams, and the Kent Street Coalition.
Learn the Basics About Redistricting
Learn about Redistricting -- The two-hour "Redistricting Forum" workshop helps voters and activists understand NH's checkered past of gerrymandering and partisan redistricting in its Special Committee on Redistricting.
Fair Redistricting Workshop -- This July 26, 2021, 70-min workshop on YouTube delves into the building blocks of fair redistricting in New Hampshire, and was designed to help legislators, the press and the public understand the unique and challenging aspects of redistricting in the Granite State. https://youtu.be/lWVWNsVF-8E
An Overview for Redistricting -- The Brennan Center at NYU is a leading authority on redistricting policy.

NH Map-a-Thon - Citizen Mapping Project Action Page - Small but powerful actions you can take to push the NH Legislature to conduct a fair, nonpartisan and transparent redistricting process.
Communities of Interest
One of the cornerstones of fair redistricting includes "Communities of Interest," which are issues, shared resources, and cultural ties which bind communities and neighborhoods together. Proper voting districts keep these communities together whenever possible. See the original survey used to collect data https://forms.gle/jt36TdDWZxRJ89yz7\
See the Map-a-Thon's Voting District Maps
Because New Hampshire doesn't have an independent redistricting commission, two partisan committees in the NH House and the NH Senate draw the NH House, NH Senate, NH Executive Council, NH's seats for U.S. Congress, and County Commission. The Map-a-Thon project maps compare 2010 maps withe 2020 maps modeling techniques used by an independent redistricting commission.
