Redistricting For 2010

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

The Hill posted an article yesterday concerning the redistricting that will take place between the 2010 and the 2012 Congressional elections.  All members of the House of Representatives have to run for reelection every two years, so the districts that are electing them will be the same in 2010.  According to the article:

"Though many districts are in play, a few will be particularly important the cycle before redistricting, including those of freshman Democratic Reps. Bobby Bright (Ala.), Suzanne Kosmas (Fla.), Ed Teague (N.M.), Betsy Markey (Colo.), John Adler (N.J.) and Dina Titus (Nev.). If Republicans are unable to recapture these districts next year, they could be much harder to win back in the future."

The states control their redistricting, but the national census will determine how many representatives a state will get (based on the population counted in the census).  Remember that ACORN is planning to play a major role in the next census and work closely with the current White House to assure that all people are counted.  That's political speak for using some sampling methods in certain cities to show more people than actually live there.  I really am beginning to worry about the integrity of the election process in the mid-term and next presidential elections.  The fact that voters were intimidated by Black Panthers in Philadelphia and there was no real consequence to the Black Panters for their actions causes me to wonder what comes next.
