A variety of map-drawing tools are available. Whether you use the powerful (but complicated) Maptitude Online Redistricting (MOR) tool, the simpler DistrictR online mapping tool, Excel, the paper map kit, or just draw on a napkin, we welcome your maps!

The paper mapping tools (#3 and #4) have now been updated with the official population totals. The online mapping tools (#5 and #6) still use unofficial population estimates, but will be updated soon.

If you are using the online mapping tools, the population from residential projects built since 2010 may not be reflected in the exact right place on the map. You can visit this page to see a list of recently built or soon-to-be-built housing projects. If you drew a draft map using unofficial population estimates, you can double-check (and fine tune, if necessary) your original proposal by referring to the official totals displayed on the paper mapping tools (#3 and #4).
