5/24/2011 Legislative LegMap1 Branden Durst 35 Legislative District Map. Map was designed to maximize compactness maintain communities of interest including Native American Reservations incorporated cities and neighborhood associations where applicable limit number of divided counties comply with statutes regarding road connectivity to the maximum extent possible and to increase the easiness in which to define legislative boundaries. As to the latter objective precincts were reconstructed especially in Canyon County where boundaries provided in current precincts provided unnecessary complexity and likely not in accordance with state law. Outside of Canyon County precincts were redrawn only slightly and generally only with the inten to follow major roads in communities where the road had not been followed previously. Doing so makes the boundaries for the districts easier to define i.e. District X is always north of ABC Road instead of District X is always north of ABC Road except here and here where it crosses .

5/29/2011 Legislative Legislative 2 Brent Danielson This is my attempt at redistricting the 35 state legislative districts. The districts have been drawn to reflect changing population distribution within the state of Idaho. The districts maintain communities of interest as well as trying to keep counties intact and meet the other general instructions for developing and submitting a proposed redistricting plan.

6/14/2011 Legislative (Partial) 35 Seat Magic Valley and Central Idaho Prop A Jared Larsen Arrangement of Central Idaho and Magic Valley. All counties kept whole except Twin Falls. Murtaugh precinct is attached to the proposed District 3. Most of Twin Falls City and the eastern side of the county is contained in the proposed District 5 and the proposed district 4 links Gooding and Camas Counties with western Twin Falls County.

6/14/2011 Legislative (Partial) 35 Seat Magic Valley and Central Idaho Prop B Jared Larsen A plan makes it possible to keep Ada County whole. Splints in Twin Falls and Bingham Counties. Murtaugh and Hansen precincts are added to proposed district 3. Western Twin Falls County is joined with Gooding County. The city of Twin Falls and eastern Twin Falls County is largely confined to a single district. Proposed district 6 extends further into rural Bingham County. L7 L7 Report
6/14/2011 Legislative (Partial) 35 Seat Magic Valley and Central Idaho Prop C Jared Larsen Similar to Prop B but proposed district 6 does not have Oneida County instead takes in the Aberdeen area of Bingham and the western portion of the city of Chubbuck. This map makes it much more possible to keep Ada whole and to link the SE Idaho district to southern Bannock County. L8 L8 Report

6/17/2011 Legislative New 35 Districts Joshua Peters This plan recreates most of Idaho s 35 districts so that rural and urban suburban communities will be represented by different state legislators. In years past rural communities have shared their senators and representatives with more urban communities drawing a legislators responsiblities in two directions. These districts have been drawn to create urban suburban and rural districts across the state leaving room for suburban districts to develop and grow in the next decade. L10 L10 Report

6/29/2011 Legislative Legislative modified splitline 32 Districts Rebecca Jacobsen I used a splitline method. Divide the state in half by population using the shortest line possible. Then divide each of those pieces in half again using the shortest lines. Then recursively continue dividing each part in half by population until 32 districts have been created. I did try to keep counties together but it didn t always work out. Advantages unbiased compact districts only small variations in population between districts. L12 L12 Report

7/6/2011 Legislative (Partial) D Nelson 2 David Nelson This is a Legislative plan North of the Salmon River. It works to keep counties intact where ever possible. It is not well thought out in Kootenai county for boundaries within that county. It has a very large rural district consisting of Idaho Clearwater Shoshone and parts of Bonner County. This area is not well connected but it is of similar economic Forest mines and ranching character. L14 L14 Report

7/14/2011 Legislative (Partial) JLH Legislative Ada John Hatch This plan is only developed for Ada County. I believe there should be 35 legislative districts for the State. The population in Ada County would then merit 9 districts. This plan is based on the 9 districts being wholly within Ada County. L19 L19 Report
7/14/2011 Legislative (Partial) District one and two Rick Price This map is my best attempt using the software available to show what I think is the most sensible way to split up Bonner County between districts one and two. The districts should be split in Bonner County using the line that separates the West Bonner and the Lake Pend Oreille School Districts. Although the actual district line splits the Edgemere precinct and perhaps the Laclede Precinct the population change will be bout 1000 fewer people in district one still within the 10%deviation needed. This district split makes the most sense because it preserves self-proclaimed voter approved communities of interest. Voters in both school districts voted to split the former Bonner County School District along this line about eleven years ago. I was unable to find useable online maps showing the School district boundaries but will be glad to dig deeper and get them for should you need more info on this proposal. My lines on the southern edge of district two are a little more arbitrary but still preserve communities in the northern part of Kootenai County. L20 L20 Report

7/15/2011 Legislative My Current Legislative 2 Grant Loebs This is a plan I developed and am submitting at the request of Commissioner Anderson as a result of my testimony at the Twin Falls hearing. My position has changed as a result of conversations with the Commissioners and the testimony of others at the Twin Falls hearing--especially with regard to the Owyhee-Twin Falls County issue. This plan couples Twin Falls with an intact Gooding County and seeks throughout the state to keep counties intact as much as possible. Sen. Lee Heider Sen. Bert Brackett Rep. Stephen Hartgen Rep.

7/18/2011 Legislative 34 Districts divided by television markets Mike Crawford This plan for 34 districts adds one more consideration to the list of things that are required by statute it keeps each district in a single media market. 34 was chosen because that allowed for 7 districts in the Spokane market 15 in the Boise-Nampa Market 4 in the Twin Falls market and 8 in the Idaho Falls-Pocatello market. Not only would it be easier and more economical to run a campaign in these districts it avoids the problem of huge sprawling rural districts other than #34 and keeps communities of interest together. The smallest district is District 13 S. Nampa and Kuna short by 2 219 4.8% the largest is Power S. Bingham and N. Bannock which is 2 155 high 4.7% . Drawbacks the city of Moscow is split in 3 parts but I don t see any other way to build those Panhandle districts without ignoring the state highway rule. Other than the counties that have to be split because they are bigger than 1 district this plan splits Bonner Latah Nez Perce Jerome and Fremont Counti L26 L26 Report
7/18/2011 Legislative 34 Districts divided by television markets Mike Crawford This 34 district plan adds one more consideration to the list of statutory considerations no district crosses the boundaries of Idahos four major media markets Spokane-Coeur d Alene Boise-Nampa Twin Falls and Idaho Falls-Pocatello . 34 districts were chosen because that was the most even between markets of the six available choices 30 to 35 districts . Advantages to considering media markets Advantages gets rid of sprawling districts in multiple media markets like current #8 and #23 television and radio need not be purchased in multiple markets for the same campaign the same media issues are familiar throughout each district. Disadvantages are few they include that Moscow must be split or we must ignore the highway rule and put Shoshone County in with a district that it has no highway connection with I think this is a likely dilemma in just about any plan. Max deviation is 4.8% low LD 13 and 4.7% high LD 27 . Other than counties that must be split because of their populnthis plan splits only Bonner Latah Nez Perce Jerome Fremont and Bingham Counties.

7/29/2011 Legislative 35 LD CAP Chris Pentico Twin Falls and Caldwell has split discontiguous precincts to create contiguous legislative districts. All legislative districts in this plan are contiguous. Some precincts were split to keep the Fort Hall and the Nez Perce Indian reservations intact Power and Caribou counties were split to accommodate keeping the Fort Hall Indian reservation intact as well. The precincts that were split for the indian reservation follow the reservations borders.The counties that were split are Bonner Kootenai Latah Nez Perce Ada Canyon Twin Falls Power Bingham Bannock Caribou Bonneville and Freemont.

Districts 1-22 are unaffected. Summary of altered districts 23 Elmore Camas & Gooding 24 Blaine Lincoln & Minidoka 25 generally Twin Falls City 26 Jerome small part of Twin Falls City and western southern rural Twin Falls Co. 27 Cassia Power 5 precincts in eastern Twin Falls Co 2 in Bingham. 28 Same as L34 29 generally Pocatello City 30 Chubbuck most of the populated section of Ft Hall Reservation and eastern Bingham 31 Same as L34 32 Same as L34 33 Same as L34 34 Same as L34 35 Clark Lemhi Custer Butte western Bingham & southwestern Bonneville. No precinct splits. Counties not kept whole in the section I changed Twin Falls Bannock Bingham Bonneville & Fremont. I like the goals of L34 but I think this where possible follows some of the citizen input for districts 23-35 a little better and pushes the total deviation down that factor in this citizens opinion being of the essence.

8/5/2011 Legislative 35 District Plan Redistricting Commission This map is a variation of L34 and cleans up district lines between Districts 30, 31, 32 and 33 without affecting deviation, but includes one precinct split. In light of recent testimony, this plan puts Lewis and Nez Perce Counties into District 6 by adjusting Districts 2, 4, 5, 6 and 7. As a result, this plan has only 10 county splits. L38 L38 Report

8/5/2011 Legislative 35 District Plan Redistricting Commission This plan follows L34 for North Idaho. It takes a different approach than L34 by joining Power County to the southeastern counties, through Oneida County, rather than directly east into Bannock. This requires other adjustments in the map as it moves north. L40 L40 Report

Other Notes
Commissioners Esposito and Frasured have indicated a strong desire to unnecessarily divide Ada County and be provided alternate county configurations. This plan attempts to meet both of those demands. It should be noted that dividing Ada County will have the impact of disrupting communities of interest but in the spirit of compromise this plan is submitted. All county divisions were made in accordance with 72-1506. No precinct divisions. Plan used L28 as its foundation but significant changes after District 8.

8/14/2011 Legislative L28 Compromise 1 Branden Durst Plan Specifications Number of Counties Divided = 6 Bonner Canyon Twin Falls Bannock Bonneville and Madison. Number of Legislative Districts not conforming with the Road Rule = 2 LD-2 LD-31 .Other Notes This map attempts to take L28 and improve its conformity with the Road Rule as provided in 72-1506. The plan is identical to L28 for districts 1-7. Substantive changes exist in nearly all districts thereafter. L28 divided Teton County but this plan differs by dividing Madison County instead. This was done in order to bring D35 into conformity with 72-1506. This plan is the most legally conforming map of all maps submitted to this date either by the public or the Commission. L44 L44 Report
8/15/2011 Legislative 35 District Plan Redistricting Commission This plan is a variant of L34. The changes include putting Washington, Adams, Valley and Boise Counties together with a portion of Ada County, joined by Highway 21. It also puts Gem and Payette Counties together with a portion of Canyon County, joined by Interstate 84. The plan then makes the necessary adjustments to the districts within Ada and Canyon Counties to make this adjustment work. L45 L45 Report
8/16/2011 Legislative 35 District Plan Redistricting Commission This map keeps county divisions at a minimum but is a compromise to also keep Fort Hall reservation whole, lower the deviation and better honor the statute guidelines. L46 L46 Report
8/17/2011 Legislative 35 District Plan Redistricting Commission This plan is a variant of L45. The only change is in Fremont County, where the Egan and Parker precincts are shifted into District 34, and the Chester/Twin Groves precinct is shifted into District 33. This provides better road access to the balance of the legislative district for the three precincts in question, while also providing for a smaller population deviation in overall district size.

8/19/2011 Legislative 35 District Plan Redistricting Commission In response to the concern that the L46 map puts Eagle in the same district as Boise, this edit moves a few precincts in Ada to put the majority of the Eagle impact area into District 14, as opposed to District 18. L48 L48
8/19/2011 Legislative Final Seth Grigg This map is submitted on behalf of Ada Bannock Bear Lake Bonneville Canyon Caribou Clark Elmore Franklin Fremont Gem Jefferson Madison Oneida Owyhee Payette Teton and Valley Counties and should be considered as a proposal from these counties only. The map is not an official map of the Idaho Association of Counties nor its member counties not listed above. County commissioners from each of the counties listed above worked together to draft the map for their respective regions. The county commissioners sought to build as much regional consensus as possible in drafting the map. The map is not complete but a proposal from Eastern and Western Idaho. The map was drafted following the guidelines set forth in the Idaho Constitution and Idaho State Code. Each district is within the allowable deviation. Counties not split to the maximum extent possible. Counties that are split are linked by the federal and state highway system. Splits to counties were kept to a minimum. The map was draftedwithout consideration of incumbency or party as prescribed by law. L49 L49 Report

8/23/2011 Legislative Legislative with 30 Districts Mike Crawford This is a 30 district plan that meets almost all the criteria. The only county splits not required by population are in Idaho and Elmore Counties Idaho was split to avoid the need to split the City of Lewiston and Elmore is split to avoid placing Owyhee with Twin Falls and violating the highway criterion.

10/4/2011 Legislative My Current Legislative 2 Grant Loebs This is a slight revision of Plan L23. It maintains L23 s committment to Idaho constitutional requirements as enunciated in Bingham County v. Idaho Commission for Reapportionment 137 ID 870 that counties may not be divided unnecessarily.
The plan was revised to correct slight deviations in population in District 14 and to correct an error in the drawing of District 8 and Northern Blaine County.
The goal of this plan is to 1. comply with the Federal one-man one-vote requirement 2. follow the Idaho Constitutional requirement in Article III Section 5 that counties not be divided unnecessarily and 3. to maintain traditional neighborhoods and communities of interest.
No consideration was given to gerrymandering to insulate incumbents in any party.
THIS PLAN IS ENDORSED BY THE COMMISSIONERS OF TWIN FALLS AND GOODING COUNTIES.

10/5/2011 Legislative My Current Legislative 2 Grant Loebs This is a revision of L84 for some reason some of the changes didn t take when I revised L23 .

10/7/2011 Legislative John Hatch Plan 83 Modify John Hatch This plan made a single modification to L83. The modification only affected Ada County and it only affected Districts 15 and 20. The modification changed the boundary dividing Districts 15 and 20 from an east west line along Ustick Road to a north south line along Eagle road. The modification left the external boundaries of these two districts exactly the same on had no effect on any other districts. This modification does a better job of maintaining communities of interest. Instead of two Districts each spanning west Boise to east Meridian it makes 15 a west Boise District and 20 an east Meridian district. Eagle Road is a natural dividing line. It is a major transportation commercial corridor. It makes no sense to have two Districts that are split in two by Eagle Road when you can use Eagle Road as the dividing line between the two districts. The modification still makes two Districts that fit within the standard population deviation. L86 L86 Report

1/24/2012 Legislative New Twin Falls 5 County Minimal Split Plan Grant Loebs This FIVE-COUNTY SPLIT PLAN is derived from 1.The Twin Falls et al Supreme Court Proposal 2. WITH the addition of L87 s Ada County 3. A NEW Teton Bonneville section which avoids splitting Teton County and spreading that District all the way from Teton to Utah and 4. A NEW Bannock Power section which keeps Pocatello whole and combines Power with rural Bannock.
Deviation is approx. 9.4%.
This Plan follows the U.S. and Idaho Constitutions the recent Idaho Supreme Court ruling and the I.C.72-1506 5 requirement that Division of counties shall be avoided whenever possible. In the event that a county must be divided THE NUMBER OF SUCH DIVISIONS PER COUNTY SHOULD BE KEPT TO A MINIMUM.
The following counties through their Commissioners and Clerks have approved this plan for their respective counties Ada Adams Bingham Butte Caribou Clark Elmore Franklin Fremont Gooding Kootenai Owyhee Teton and Twin Falls. This plan is also supported by Twin Falls City through its Council.

1/26/2012 Legislative Reform of L90 Jared Larsen This plan operates under the assumption that L90 remains in effect throughout the state except for the Magic Vally region which is redrawn within that framework. Statewide deviation is unaffected. The number of county splits is unaffected. Residents of Cassia have express an interest in remaining linked to Power and rural eastern Twin Falls County as other plans have drawn. Absent that possibility the preference is to be linked to Minidoka. Of all bordering counties linking Cassia to Jerome is the option that makes the least sense as the border is an approximately 3 mile sparsely-populated section along the Snake River through which there is literally no connection. Linking Jerome with Twin Falls makes far more sense than with Cassia. Lines within Twin Falls are not set in stone the lines of 3 districts are changeable to accommodate communities of interest and desires of the residents there. The purpose of this map is offer a theoretical framework that is equitable for all the valley and does not rely on an attenuated 3 mile county border. L92 L92 Report
