I wonder what the presidential election looks like in TTL. First of all, Buttigieg probably doesn't run if he just got elected to the House. Second, does 1000 congressional districts mean 1,103 electoral votes (552 to win)?

I assume that without Pete's candidacy, Biden would probably be even more likely to be nominated. Just a theory of mine.
Regarding the number of EVs, it would be 1108, because due to a miscalculation in North Carolina, the project will have 1005 districts instead of 1000.

When you get to Texas, please. no. Ducky. Pajamas. (aka Blake Farenthold)...

That is all...
Well, I haven't even started thinking about Texas yet, but the smaller the districts, the more likely certain people will be elected ...

Really digging this project, but oh boy that Arizona map. Yeesh. Did you take Native American reservations in account, like, at all?
Well, in reality I didn't really respect the reserve boundary, but from my eyes I think that only two or three were cut, between the 1st, 20th and 21st.

Hmm... If we're going with the Voting Rights Act, ethnic rights should be observed, so I would put the Navajo and Hopi Reservations in as few congressional districts as possible. That number should be two, perhaps one, given the population.

I may be wrong, but by my count, Navajo and Hopi, are almost 90% in the 1st and 21st districts. And on the VRA, the Arizona map has 4 majority-minority districts (including the 1st) and 6 districts with more than 37% minority.

Well, in reality I didn't really respect the reserve boundary, but from my eyes I think that only two or three were cut, between the 1st, 20th and 21st.
I may be wrong, but by my count, Navajo and Hopi, are almost 90% in the 1st and 21st districts. And on the VRA, the Arizona map has 4 majority-minority districts (including the 1st) and 6 districts with more than 37% minority.
You've got the Hopi Reservation and the western half of the Navajo Nation in the same district (21st) as Flagstaff and heavily GOG Kingman and Mojave County, but if it's 90% Navajo then it can't possibly be a safe R district. Something's off there.

Respectfully, the Navajo, Apache, and Hopi tribes have fought really hard to have a chance at getting Congressional representation and I doubt they'd allow the Navajo Nation to be divided three ways and the Apache Nations stuck in a heavily GOP district with Gila County. It's really sort of incredible, all of the Native areas are divided into Safe/Likely R districts or one swing district that's unlikely to elect a Native representative.

Props to you, though, on Juan Mendez in the Tempe district. He's an old buddy, good guy.

Yeah, the split of the reservations was the first thing that popped out to me too. It's very similar to my comment about the northwest side of Milwaukee: it's not an area that can reasonably be split up; it's splitting up a community.

I edit the map of Arizona. The 1st district has now become Safe R, in return for the 20th district becoming a majority-minority with 42% Native American. The 21st has also become even more Safe R. Congressmen from the 20th and 21st have also changed.
Thank you very much for the feedback, it's always important!

Yeah, I think that works better, pretty much guarantees a Navajo rep in Congress. Nice job.

I keep coming back to this thread. It’s like looking at pictures of a love you’ve lost forever. Wallowing in misery at “what should be.“ Look, the size (and scope) of the federal government needs to be cut in half at minimum. But (and as horrifying as this sounds on the face of it) Congress should be expanded like this. You can’t have your finger on the pulse of 500,000. And you can’t intimately know 30 or 50,000. But you sure as hell can relate to the latter better than the former. And you sure as hell can be held accountable by the latter more easily than the former. “Oh, him? He lives four blocks down from here. He did… what? See, no, I voted for him to do the opposite. Where’s my gun…“

Great stuff, man. Thanks for the thought experiment.

Thank you very much for your comment and for sharing those thoughts. I agree that a larger congress would be interesting. I believe that you will find the next project that I will do (35k people per district) even more interesting. This project has around 306k per districts and in OTL 710k.
