Use these new branches to select constituents who have moved into a county, congressional district, state senate or state house district from some other part of the state within the last two years or who currently live in a district and have been there for at least two years.
Start by selecting a district in the “Area Selections” branch.
Next, open the associated “New To District” branch for that type of district and make your time selection.
By first identifying the district in which you are looking for “new to district” constituents and then selecting the time frame, you are identifying constituents who have moved from some other part of your state into your district during that period. As seen above for the 1st congressional district, had we selected “Between 1 and 2 Years Ago” as an option, we would have been selecting 19,859 constituents who had moved from some other congressional district within the state into the 1st congressional district during that time frame. They are existing constituents in your state who are “new movers” into your district. The same analysis could be performed by selecting a particular county then opening and making a selection in the “Moved Within State To A New County” branch.
Finally, remember that this selection can be combined with any other selection in other branches. Try selecting “New to District” constituents who belong to a particular party or who are within a particular age range.
Important Notes: This selection does not include constituents who are newly-registered and live in your district. It selects specifically those who have been registered in some other part of the state but who have now moved to your district or who have lived in your district for at least two years. Also, note that this analysis is dependent on the particular dates on which it is done and new data are released to L2 ConstituentMapping so the time frames for the in-state moves are approximate rather than exact. Finally, note that only constituents who have actually moved are being analyzed. Redistricting that places a constituent in a new district without that constituent having moved does not result in that constituent appearing as a “new to district” constituent.
