Commission Requested "What If" Maps

“What If” maps represent hypothetical scenarios that commissioners have asked the mapping consultants to explore. (For instance, start with the premise of a Colorado River congressional district and see how the map plays out.) A “What If” map is not a version of any official map being drawn by the commissioners. “What If” maps merely provide insight to the commissioners as they consider how to turn the initial grid map into an actual draft map to show the public.

Grid Maps Simply a Starting Point - Option 2 (Legislative & Congressioal) Adopted August 18, 2011

The Arizona Constitution mandates that redistricting begin with a grid map. This is to ensure that each Independent Redistricting Commission starts from scratch.

But these grid maps reflect only two of the six criteria the commissioners are required to consider:
Equal population; and

Compactness and contiguousness.

In drafting the new district maps, commissioners must modify the grid maps to account for four other criteria:

Compliance with the U.S. Constitution and the Voting Rights Act;

Respect for communities of interest;

Incorporation of visible geographic features, including city, town and county boundaries, as well as undivided census tracts; and

Creation of competitive districts where there is no significant detriment to other goals.
