[ARCHIVED] New congressional district lines sew confusion

A map of U.S. congressional district lines drawn by Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court following the refusal of state legislators to minimize the Commonwealth’s excessive gerrymandering, has split Cranberry into two separate districts: the 16th 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 primary elections coming up in May, the new district lines have split four of the Township’s nine precincts in ways that are difficult for voters to recognize.  To help, Cranberry has posted new maps as well as an online tool to tell users their precinct, poll location and 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 Board of Supervisors.  That form, together with updated district maps, are available from the link below.  The Board had previously adopted a resolution calling for the task of drawing district lines to become the responsibility of an impartial citizens board of instead of the highly partisan system now in place.
