With Ben Cardin running for the US Senate the 3rd Congressional District (most of East Columbia, Elkridge, Rivers Edge and north side of Johns Hopkins Road) voters have the most competitive election they have seen in 20 years. Here is a map of the district:

Mishonda Baldwin (D) - Motivational Speaker, Attorney, & Desert Storm Veteran
Andy Barth (D) - TV News Reporter
Dr. Peter Beilenson (D) - Former Baltimore Health Commissioner

Yes it is. I was thinking of trying to post some of the worst gerrymanders and have people vote on or rank the ones they thought were the worst. Do you think that would be fun?

That's not a congressional district - it's an abstract portrait of Shawn White shredding upside down on a snowboard giving the "V" for victory sign.
