  •  county splits (6+ / 0-)

    You have to remember that in Colorado cities can span more than one county, so that either a county split or a city split may be necessary.

    I remember when I lived in Aurora it was in both Adams and Arapahoe counties, and I read in a blog here recently that it is now in a third county.

    So one of the county splits was necessary to include the portion of Aurora in Douglas county in with the rest of Aurora

      against a Congressional court ruling in the GOP's favor.  Of the counties with a Congressional district split, most of them either served community of interest goals (e.g. the inclusion of northern Park county in CO-02) or the goal of including an entire city in a single district (e.g. Aurora in CO-06).
