We're pleased to announce an update is coming to the community boards.
Saturday, September 24th: We are migrating the boards to a new platform. The site is currently in read-only mode and we will bring it back online as soon as the migration is complete.
I can get behind this.Gerrymandering, whether in Texas or California, is simply wrong.But lets not pose this as a moral equivalence in terms of the number of states that engage in it, or the truly egregious examples to which we can point.It’s simply, flat out, wrong.Wherever it occurs. --------------Wrong, wherever it occurs. I agree with that. With any change there will be winners and there will be losers and the losers will always claim gerrymandering. What sort of process could be employed to rule out that claim? Perhaps some limits on geometry that would rule out those amoeba shaped districts. Require all districts to be rectangular with the long side no greater than 2x the short side, or something like that. Even if something could work at the state level, there are still issues with city council districts and country government districts.Entrenched politicians would probably still figure out ways to exploit anyway.
