Panel releases maps for Congressional and Legislative re-districting; cities and county districts are next up

The redistricting process moved a step forward Tuesday with the release of the congressional and legislative maps on this page.
The maps below, lower left and lower right depict the new congressional districts and legislative districts’ boundaries.  
Chisago County apparently remains in Congressional Dist. 8.
The House District in which Bob Barrett (17) serves is being split in the upper corner of the county, the dashed line divides the county into House Dist. 32 A and 32 B.  
The Franconia Township area of Chisago County is shown being pulled down into Washington County District and a newly drawn 39A.
According to Secretary of State Mark Ritchie there are no requirements for federal or state office holders to live in the district in which they’ll seek election -- at this time.  
State candidates for offices in St. Paul  must reside in the district they wish to represent by May 5, 2012 or six months before election day (Nov 5).  State office candidates also must have lived in Minnesota for at least one year by election day.
Congressional candidates must be residents of the State of Minnesota by election day, but they don’t have to reside in the area where their district is located.
Complete filing information is available at the secretary of state website.
