  • Now that’s a fun gerrymandering question. As a high school history teacher, I won’t tell you the answer, but you make look it up here:


  • The reason he redrew the Congressional districts is because the US census changed the number of Representatives for the state. The way the lines were drawn is generally considered to fit with answer “D.”

  • Politicians have been coralling innocent folks for years. It’s a trick to move you about until everyone who thinks like they do is in their district.
