It would go something like this: Any county (or parish or borough) of a state that borders another state may vote by a 60% majority of its legal residents to secede from their state and join the bordering state. The bordering state they vote to join must agree via a 2/3 majority vote by its legislature for the transition to take effect. The county will then switch states. The state that the county voted to leave will be fully compensated at fair market value over a period not to exceed 10 years for any state property that can be demonstrated to not have been funded and supported by The People of the seceding county. The seceding county may not vote to switch states again until the compensation for the switch has been completed. I'm sure the actual wording would necessarily be a lot more legal and less clear, but you get the idea- let the borders of states be fluid so The People have more choice in how they are governed. Not only will people have less animosity as a result of feeling 'stuck' in a state run by political polar opposites, but state governments will likely be a lot more interested in keeping their people happy, lest those people all vote to leave. Thoughts?
