[ARCHIVED] New congressional district lines sew confusion

A
map of U.S. congressional district lines drawn by Pennsylvania’s Supreme Courtfollowing the refusal of state legislators to minimize the Commonwealth’s
excessive gerrymandering, has split Cranberry into two separate districts: the16th and the 17th. Those lines are subject to future change resulting from litigation,legislation, and census findings.  But
they are in place for now.  With the primaryelections coming up in May, the new district lines have split four of the
Township’s nine precincts in ways that are difficult for voters torecognize.  To help, Cranberry has posted
new maps as well as an online tool to tell users their precinct, poll locationand congressional district when they enter their home address.  At its April 26 meeting, Information Systems
Manager Chad Julkowski demonstrated the form’s operation to Cranberry’s Boardof Supervisors.  That form, together with
updated district maps, are posted at 
www.cranberrytownship.org/82/Voter-Information The Board hadpreviously adopted a resolution calling for the task of drawing district lines
to become the responsibility of an impartial citizens board of instead of thehighly partisan system now in place.
