This Is How Gerrymandering Works

Gerrymandering is not only designed to preserve majorities. It’s also designed to preserve cynicism and non-participation. When I’ve been out on the campaign trail, I’ve found one thing is reliably true. Regardless of party, nobody likes gerrymandering. I got confirmation of that when I recently put together a thread on Twitter showing how gerrymandering worked in my own district. It touched a nerve. Americans agree that, in a democracy, everyone ought to have an equal vote. And they are tired of living under a rigged system.
