After legal challenges over “extreme partisan gerrymandering” in Maryland’s proposed congressional map, Gov. Hogan signed a redrawn map into law in early April.
There are a variety of maps out there that examine gerrymandering and partisan lean (like this one from FiveThirtyEight, and this one from New York Times) in congressional districts, but we’ve focused on creating a swipe map to help Marylanders compare the new 2022 congressional districts to those from 2011.
Open this swipe map in a new window to view it larger.
Use the bar in the center of the map to swipe between 2011 congressional districts (left side of the map) and 2022 congressional districts (right side of the map). Use the address search at the top of the map to find a city or address or use the My Location button to navigate to your approximate current location.
We have also created a swipe map to compare Maryland’s 2011 and 2022 congressional districts, check that out here.
