Answered: What IS Gerrymandering?

hand-784077_960_720

Gerrymandering. Many have heard the term. Many likely have an idea of what it means—but maybe not so much of an idea of why it’s a problem, and what it’s ramifications are.

While there are myriad white papers and websites devoted to exploration and awareness of the redistricting woe known as gerrymandering, few are able to explain it in simple language.

Until now.

MTV recently published a story titled, “What the Heck is Gerrymandering” and not only is it a great primer, but it’s also an engaging, quick read.

And after your done reading the story, and feeling like, “What can I do to help end the practice of gerrymandering?” please consider signing this petition asking for reform in Pennsylvania.
