Take a look at a map of Oregon’s new House districts, and you’ll see a languid Z shape stretching from central Salem north and west to Keizer.

It’s as if Zorro had an off day. That’s House District 21.

It’s one of just four out of 60 house districts considered competitive by the Princeton Gerrymandering Project, which studies how legislative districts are drawn. Because of changes in population recorded by the U.S. Census every 10 years, district boundaries are redrawn at 10-year intervals.

HD 21 tilts Democrat, but could elect a Republican. That means the November election could be interesting to watch.

But first, Republicans and Democrats living in the district need to decide who will represent their party. Each will have two candidates to choose from.
