New software that could revolutionize the every-ten-years process of drawing up new districts for state House and Senate and Congressional districts was the subject of an article on Sunday March 20 In The Washington Post. NPF presented a free webinar on the identical subject a month earlier, with one of the software’s creators. Michael McDonald of George Mason University, co-presented the NPF’s Feb. 18 webinar on the complex topic of redistricting. With David Wasserman of the Cook Political Report. Professor McDonald addressed policy, politics and reporting about a process that goes to the heart of our representative democracy. Complete audio and the two presenters’ Powerpoints are on our website, here. The Washington Post article, by Thomas E. Mann, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, and Norman J. Ornstein, resident scholar the American Enterprise Institute, is called, “The Rigged Redistricting Process.”
