About The Blog

About the Blog:

 The blog started in 2008 analyzing political races.  Since then, subjects this blog covers includes demographics and redistricting as well. In 2011, I mainly focused drawing proposals for congressional redistricting. I believe that as citizens, we need to contribute to the redistricting process instead of having the legislature decide for us. In 2013, my posts are devoted to analyzing the 2014 playing field and 2013 elections such as California's SD-16 special election and the Virginia Statewide races.
