Gerrymander

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 towns like Frederick and Hagerstown, 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.
