Crafty politicians use sophisticated software to manipulate voting districts to ensure they win!

Voting districts in Pennsylvania were among the nation's most distorted, all for partisan gain.

Here's Our Solution

 Using a new program, we have created a map of Pennsylvania Congressional districts that are compact, minimize breaks in political subdivisions, and have exactly equal number populations + or - one person.


What is significant about the rules and this map is that they:


  •  Are based on Article II Section 16 of the Pennsylvania Constitution, the 1911 Reapportionment Act (same language for 3 rules) and the 1972 Pennsylvania Congressional Map — 100% consistent with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court's decision in the League of Women Voters v PA case..
  • Can work in almost any state with any number of districts.

  • Create an objective standard for the courts to detect political gerrymandering and reject partisan maps. 

  • Are likely to yield the lowest number of county splits (e.g., 18 for 2018) and the lowest number of political subdivision splits (e.g., 17 for 2018). 

  • Are easy to use. It took only 20 hours to create this map by hand and less than one hour using a redistricting program.

  •  Provides an answer to Justice Kennedy's plea for a neutral and objective legal standard that will end or severely limit partisan gerrymandering.
