    We can go back, we just need a tipping-point calling for a federal convention of the states in order to formally propose an amendment which bans gerrymandering.

      Although it is possible, imagine the political opposition!

    I understand there’s a lawsuit, isn’t there, challenging the blatant gerrymandering in Republican controlled states?

      There are several I know of: Wisconsin, Maryland and South Carolina. Here in Florida, the state was redistricted in time for the 2016 Election. Republicans still have more districts, but the Democrats gained 3.

    Thanks for sharing. This is redistricting up close. Neighbors are divided politically when, in fact, they share common interests of the community in which they live.

      It’s a little crazy. In addition, redistricting usually involves long, expensive, contentious court battles.
