    Thanks for taking the time and effort to prepare the map.
    I believe that after the redistricting process, in accordance with Fair District amendments 5 and 6. Palm Beach County (PBC), which is currently partly represented by five (5) state senators, should be represented by three (3) state senators, based on the following facts:

    Florida 2010 census total population of 18,801,310 divided by 40, the total Senate districts, means that each senate district would consist of a population of 470,033, (current district
    population 399,559). PBC 2010 census total population of 1,320,134, divided by 470,033 should mean that PBC would have 2.81 Senators. If Deerfield Beach, Broward County,
    population were included, PBC would have three State Senators.

    I would suggest that redistricted senate district boundaries are drawn much along the lines of current boundaries for districts 25, 29, and 30, and incorporate the PBC areas currently represented by districts 27 and 28.

    I don’t think your map provides the best representation for Palm Beach county.

  2. This is a very good map. Excellent effort and attention to demographics. Could be a little more compact, but more compact than the plan we have now.

    @David:

    Thanks for the comments, however I feel your argument misses an important part of the redistricting puzzle, each county isnt’t drawn seperately but rather as part of the larger Florida map. Just because PBC has enough population for only 3 senators doesn’t mean that the surrounding counties can be drawn compactly if drawn that way. If a map that respects the surrounding counties while drawing only 3 PBC seats is posted, Id be happy to attempt another proposal.
