For each county or statistically equivalent entity, these county-based maps show the boundaries and codes for Voting Districts and/or State Legislative Districts as delineated by the participating states in Phase 2, Voting District Project, of the Census 2000 Redistricting Data Program; the features underlying these boundaries; and the names of these features. These maps also show the boundaries and names of American Indian areas/Alaska Native areas/Hawaiian home lands, counties, county sub-divisions, and places. The maps will be available only for those states and counties that participated in the Voting District Project. Some states did not participate in the Census 2000 Redistricting Data Program and there are no Voting District/State Legislative District maps for these states.
FINDING THE MAPS YOU NEED:
Go to the appropriate county subdirectory and download or view on-line the county index map. The county index map (see a sample) will show the county boundaries and the boundaries of any places within the county. It will also have an overlay of a grid of squares. Each square represents the area covered by one of the maps for that county. Using this grid, determine which map or maps cover the area of interest. Within each grid square you will find a map sheet number. This number is also a part of the file name for the PDF file of the map(s). It is in the last three positions before ".pdf". With this information, you can download or view the appropriate maps(s).
In some counties, the entire county is shown on a single Voting District/State Legislative District Map. For these counties, a single map file will appear in the appropriate county sub-directory. Download or view the map on-line. If there is more than one map file in the appropriate sub-directory, download or view the county index map on-line.
