Matthew May quoted in 2020 census article

Matthew May, a senior research associate with the School of Public Service, recently was quoted in an Idaho Statesman article titled, “We’re the fastest-growing state — again. Could that mean another Idaho voice in Congress?

May was asked to comment on how Idaho might be redistricted to accommodate another congressional seat.

“Generally, the two districts we’ve had, it’s been fairly easy,” May said, while explaining Idaho’s redistricting options. “People just draw a line down the middle of the state. But the question becomes about moving a line to accommodate the growth in the Treasure Valley.”
