    That remove the precinct boundaries? Or the file itself (I thought I had sent it to you already anyway).

      most of the time at least when I do close ups as it gives you a rough idea of the population in cities, but I obviously take them out for statewide shots. I have the file itself though you might have changed it since. And yes, I have no fucking clue what I'm doing when it comes to massive VRA states like Texas; thank god California had the model for this project as I'd have otherwise never have done it. Florida alone was enough of a bear to map out and I'm still very dissatisfied with how my map turned out.
