Abstract:

Redistricting is a straightforward, simple concept: by law election districts must be adjusted to maintain an equal number of people in each district. This simple process is one of the most important of all political activities: it shapes the government for a decade. When done for the public good, redistricting can be simple and straightforward. When self-preservation and ambition guide those in control, it can be a disaster for the public interest.
