Do-it-yourself redistricting


Yesterday, the Census released detailed population counts for the District of Columbia. That means elected leaders will start debating how to redraw D.C.’s wards. You, too, can get involved and do it yourself using a new “Redistricting Game” at http://redistricting.greatergreaterwashington.org.

Ward 2 needs to shrink and Wards 7 and 8 need to grow. Each ward has to end up within 5 percent of the average. What’s your idea?

David Alpert is founder and editor of Greater Greater Washington. The Local Blog Network is a group of bloggers from around the D.C. region who have agreed to make regular contributions to All Opinions Are Local.
