Gerrymander

Desarae Mann, 7, rests her head on her mom, April's leg, next to her sister, Ariana Mann, 8, left. Also with the Manns are Siblings, Kam'ryn, 5, and Kaliyah Stouffer, 8 in downtown Smithsburg, Maryland, on Tuesday, September 26, 2017. Smithsburg is a very different town than the southern part of the district that includes Potomac and Germantown. Originally a District that was mostly rural, but included big towns like Frederick Hagerstown, along with smaller ones like Smithsburg, Maryland's 6th District was redistricted in 2011, combining rural northern Maryland regions with more affluent communities like near Washington D.C. turning the district from Republican to Democrat.
