The Census, Redistricting and Gerrymandering


Have you ever been surprised to find out you were or were not in a voting district?

Every decade, our voting districts are modified according to the census data. While every district has roughly the same population, they are often drawn (or gerrymandered) in such a way to favor the incumbent, a political party, or any group. But does this serve us? And what can be done? This conversation examines the way districts are done and we explore how it could work better. It’s wonky, yes. But it’s also the foundation of our governance system.
