LWVNE Redistricting Maps

We drew these map with a single goal: to accurately represent the people of Nebraska in a way that makes our representative government meaningful and best positioned to serve all Nebraskans. Over the past six months, our Fair Maps Action Team members have followed the Unicameral’s redistricting discussions, studied the 2020 Nebraska Census data, reviewed the Nebraska Legislature’s redistricting guidance, and culled our own members’ input and concerns regarding Nebraska’s Congressional map. When drafting these maps, we used several data sources to inform where and how we grouped individuals and drew lines. These included the Census demographic data, Nebraska Natural Resource District BoundariesAcres of Farmland by CountyPublic School District Boundaries and analysis from the UNO Center for Public Affairs Research. Finally, Dr. Steve Dunbar, professor emeritus of mathematics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, analyzed the map to ensure it met the standards of population deviation, contiguity and compactness — the gold standard for Fair Maps.
