Will this be the new political map of Georgia?

Using Dave’s Redistricting app, an excellent online (free) mapping resource, I’ve produced a possible map of Georgia’s new congressional districts.

What I’ve tried to do here is pretend I am the GOP state legislature and ensure that the new 14th district is safely Republican (fairly easy to do) but also to weaken other Democratic districts. True, I might not have gone far enough in that!

Anyway, judge for yourselves. I’ve included the maps, as well as the electoral voting info for the new district, and the deviations from the ideal population. The real maps will be developed starting in mid-August. You saw it here first!
