A new proposal for 2022 Maryland Congressional District
Jerry Gao, a junior at River Hill School, spent a few months working with me, came out with a new proposal for Maryland Congressional District. The main purpose is to get rid of gerrymandered districts like eagle or butterfly, especially MD Congressional District 2 or District 3 as following. Both of them are arbitrary, capricious and illegal at some sense.
Current US Congressional District 2
Current US Congressional District 3
Newly Proposed US Congressional Districts
- No more peculiar district shapes borders. Majority of counties will stay in one Congressional District.
- Less population deviation for each district from the average (6,398 vs. 48,059)
- Will stay in 7 democrats, one republican status.
