LRC Redistricting Map

I agree wholeheartedly with my local State Representative, and I quote: • The LRC’s Draft Map displaces almost one-third of Bucks County residents, moving over 211,000 people into new legislative districts. • Reduces the number of competitive districts from seven to two. • Takes the voices of almost 80% of Bucks County voters away by making primary elections the deciding factor in your representation in Harrisburg. • Receives an “F” from the Princeton Gerrymandering Project in competitiveness, which notes “it is uncompetitive relative to other maps that could have been drawn.” The Bucks County Courier Times wrote a scathing editorial condemning the Draft Map for a number of reasons, not the least of which was “There's no way seven of its 10 legislative districts ought to be unwinnable for one political party or the other”. This is Gerrymandering at its worst.
