Gerrymandering Fact Sheet

Gerrymandering is one of the biggest threats to our democracy. In North Carolina, where I live, Republicans have controlled redistricting to make the state behave “red,” even though voters vote “purple.” In other states, like Maryland, Democrats have gerrymandered. Whoever does it subverts the will of the people.

It is crucial that all of us understand what gerrymandering is, what it does to our democracy, how it works, and what can be done about it. I’ve posted previously about gerrymandering. To make it easier to understand and communicate about it, I’ve prepared a two-page fact sheet. Please read it, ask questions, make suggestions, and show it to your friends. You can read it below, or download it for printing here.
