Redistricting, Territory Alignment, & Boundary Revisions

Every ten years, in a process that profoundly impacts American politics – the legislative districts are redrawn to determine who votes where.

The Constitution requires that a population count, the decennial Census, serve as the basis for redistricting, after which Congressional districts are reapportioned among the states and then each state is divided into districts of equal population. State legislatures and many local governments work the same way. Since the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the redrawing of state and congressional lines must also maximize any clear opportunity for minorities to elect candidates of their choosing. 

Maptitude mapping software is the dominant redistricting application ( Maptitude enables serious non-partisan opposition to be mounted to proposed districts, while enabling redistricting bodies to robustly defend new delineations. Simply put, Maptitude for Redistricting can be used to support the fully transparent and open process that is required to produce boundaries worthy of a democratic process.

You can leverage Maptitude's capabilities for political campaigning, school redistricting, political redistricting, service area delineation, and territory creation. Information on the available Maptitude solutions is available here.

"It’s light years ahead. The software can do so much more, so much more quickly."

-Karl Aro, Director Maryland Dept. of Legislative Services
