There are some great algorithms for fair districts.  We should work to institute those or non-partisan commissions as there are in California.  My main concern with completely blind districts is that it might be harder to get minority representatives elected, and it is good to have some minority representation.

Here is a novel idea: Instead of drawing districts according to race or political affiliation, draw them to encompass 1 or more counties. This would force candidates to run on the issues facing the State/nation and not who has the most republicans or democrats, or on race, etc. Just look at US house…

JeffCohen commented on a question

You shouldn't have to totally re-register. But you must update your voter registration with your new address info. Otherwise, you won't be listed at your new polling location when you show up to vote. When I moved (here in Florida), I received a brand new voter information card with my updated info & where to go and vote.
