The Redistricting Game


A weekend treat for all you electoral nuts out there: I’ve just discovered the Redistricting Game. It’s a net-based computer game built by people campaigning for fair electoral districts in the US. Basically you play as the person appointed to draw boundaries in the House of Representatives for the majority in the state legislature. You’re given four congressional districts, and have various tasks: simply accomodate changes in population density, gerrymander the seats to give your party three of the four seats, or gerrymander them to produce two safe Republican seats and two safe Democratic seats. A lot of fun.
