Afternoon everyone, I don’t post often and I’m more of a lurker but since I haven’t seen anyone post about this I thought I should make the HS Juniors out there aware of this since it could change sometime for them. This shouldn’t affect HS Seniors because this will more than likely be done next year (2011) As some may know this year was a Census year and one of the main reasons for the Census is to rebalance the districts based on where people are living. With that being said with even one seat change in that state it has the potential to redraw the entire states districts. The final data hasn’t come out of the Election Data Services yet but some of the expected changes have been posted. States gaining seats: Texas +4 Florida +2 Arizona +1 Georgia +1 Nevada +1 South Carolina +1 Utah +1 Washington state +1 States losing seats: Ohio -2 New York -2 Illinois -1 Iowa -1 Louisiana -1 Massachusetts -1 Michigan -1 Missouri -1 New Jersey -1 Pennsylvania -1 Source link: http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/10/25/elections.impact/index.html?iref=allsearch The article pertains more to how it affects the political environment but it can and more than likely will affect some of us in the nomination process. So those Juniors out there next year as you go through the nomination process for your House Representative pay attention to potential changes and how they affect you and your nomination sources.
