Dave's Redistricting APP (DRA)
Dave's Redistricting App (DRA) allows members of the community to create and submit proposed district maps for the city of Morgan Hill. On the main website, residents can create a user account and access a list of all their draft maps. Members of the community will need to register for an account in order to create district maps. Once a resident has created an account and logged in, they can access the two templates below, starting either with a blank map or with the current districts. Once the template has loaded, just click the paintbrush icon to "Make editable copy of this map." This opens a copy that the user can modify as they want.
1. Start with a blank map of the city
2. Start with the current council districts
For additional help, please see our "Resident How-To Guide".
Once you are done with your map, please share your map and email the link to the city at firstname.lastname@example.org
DRA 2020 is a web app to create, view, analyze and share redistricting maps for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. DRA 2020 includes demographic data from the 2020 and 2010 censuses, 2019 and 2018 5-Year ACS/CVAP estimates, and extensive election data. NDC's city map templates can be used to start new maps. DRA 2020 also includes a rich set of analytics, including measures of proportionality, competitiveness, minority representation, compactness and splitting. Find out more information about the tool at DRA 2020 (davesredistricting.org).
Submit maps to email@example.com. After you submit your map, the demographic consultants will generate the population and other demographic details for your proposed map. Maps can be viewed on the Draft Maps page or on the Interactive Review Map after the demographer has generated the population data and demographic details for the proposed map.
It is helpful if you submit written comments with your map describing how your map was drawn to meet the required criteria. An example of this would be describing the specific neighborhoods or communities of interest that are kept within a single district.
