OJJDP News @ a Glance, September/October 2013
October 2013. This means that the State should stop using U.S. Census Bureau data that count incarcerated people at correctional facility locations and begin counting them as residents at their home addresses for redistricting purposes. The process of drawing voting districts that each contain approximately the same number of people breaks down when a State relies on data that count an entire population in the wrong place. Crediting many thousands of incarcerated people to census blocks where they do not live as residents significantly enhances the weight of votes cast in districts that contain prisons; and it dilutes the votes cast in every other district. Connecticut State law provides that “No person shall be deemed to have lost his residence in any town by reason of his absence therefrom in any institution maintained by the State.“ Although Connecticut law prohibits people incarcerated for a felony from voting, approximately 28 per 1 pages.
