    the Providence Journal has an interactive map of RI's house and senate districts, showing which are above target and which are below.

    Ironically, my house district is dramatically below target, while my senate district is significantly above. Could just be the way the districts were drawn, though.

    •  I care... (0+ / 0-)

      If it's a color-coded map, I probably care.

        you might also be interested in reading the linked article (it's on the Providence Journal 7 to 7 News blog, on the right under Census 2010, I think) where my state rep Ajello surmises that the reason her district is under target is because Brown kids might have not filled out their Census forms.

        Curse those Brown kids! ;)

          They might just not consider Providence their residence.  I voted absentee there.

          •  That shouldn't affect the Census? (0+ / 0-)

            when I lived in a dorm our RHs told us to fill out the Census even if our parents were including us in theirs.
