Want to know more about gerrymandering?


Play the Redistricting Game. Some smart alecks at USC put this game together. You are the state’s mapmaker, and your party controls the state Legislature. You have to guarantee narrow partisan margins for all the districts in the state (and keep them all the same size), while getting approval from the Governor and surviving court challenges. The main point of the game is to show how much of an influence the mapmaker has in deciding elections. I suggest you try your hand.
