A Citizen's Guide to Redistricting

A Citizen's Guide to Redistricting (113 pages, PDF) from the Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University School of Law is a comprehensive primer on redistricting, including the rules and processes for redrawing federal, state, and local legislative district lines and why they matter. Funded by the Joyce Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the JEHT Foundation, and the Wallace Global Fund, the guide examines possible motives behind redistricting, illustrates the expected effects on elections and their implications for legislation, and discusses suggested reforms.
