I tend to get a little obsessive post-election with all the new data coming out from Tuesday’s results. On that note, here’s a couple of new maps based on the latest Republican gains in the Oklahoma House and Senate.
The House will welcome 20 new faces later this month when they get sworn in. Sixteen will be Republicans; Democrats held on to four open seats.
Over in the Senate, there are nine new members, all Republicans. Three of the new members in the Senate did not face an opponent in the general election.
This is the last election based on the current district lines because new Census data will come out soon. Lawmakers and staff will work on redistricting next year based on the latest population shifts.
Blue is Democrat, red is Republican and the shaded areas represent GOP gains in the following images. Click each one for a larger view.
