Drawing Fair Electoral Districts

GeoCivics provides state-based resources to develop skills and knowledge for discussing the apportionment and redistricting process in the United States. The more voices participating in this process, the more the electoral districts will reflect the community.  These resources prepare and support students, teachers, and community members with interactive tools and geospatial data, leading to engagement in conversation about the construction of electoral districts. Paying attention to where lines are drawn, by whom, and under what circumstances informs how people are governed. Everyone in the community should be equipped to ask questions of people in each jurisdiction - federal, state, and local - charged with instructing the cartographers in this task.
