Madison County

130px-Map of Indiana highlighting Adams County.svgMadison County redistricted in 2011 and its districts are contiguous and compact. However, it contains two prisons in one district. If the prisoners (who are disenfranchised and cannot vote) are counted as residents, the deviation is 7%. But if they're excluded, deviation is 13%.

 

 

County Redistricting Overview

State law and state and federal court decisions require that local government districts be compact, contiguous, not cross precint boundaries, and be as nearly equal in population as possible (usually with population deviation of less than 10%). To be in compliance, answers to each of the questions below should be "Yes".

Note: Other requirements regarding vote dilution and minority representation are not examined in this report.

Were the districts based on the 2000 census in compliance with state law? Unknown
 
Did the county redistrict after the 2010 census? Yes
 
Is the population deviation of the current districts less than 10%? Yes, if the 3,347 state prisoners housed in the county are counted as residents of the county.  With the prisoners counted, the deviation is 7%; without the prisoners it is 13%.
 
Are the current districts compact and contiguous? Yes
 
Is every precinct wholly contained within a single district? Yes
 
Other comments:

Madison County contains two state prisons, both of them located in County Council District 4 and with a combined population of 3,347 prisoners at the time of the 2010 census. The prisoners, all of whom are disenfranchised, constitute 10% of the "residents" of District 4. However, the prisoners cannot vote and the county council representative for that district almost surely does not consider them to be constituents.  Thus, a truer estimate of the population deviation in terms of representational equality is 13%.

2010 Census Data

In 2012, we were able to determine exact populations for each county council district by identifying which precincts (as drawn in 2011 by each county) were in which county council district. We were able to calculate precinct populations using the 2010 census as long as precincts contained whole census blocks, which they are supposed to do.

Total Population   131879              
Average District Population  32969              
Population Deviation   7% [13% without prisoners]

Population deviation is calculated by subtracting the smallest district from the largest district and dividing by the average district population. The maximum allowable deviation for local governments is 10%.
