Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

Retired engineer from Boeing. I believe Gerry Mandering is a defect in our democracy. ReDistrict game has most of the tools to fix it. I am from the St. Louis Missouri area. Our state uses county/city boundaries as the building blocks for our map. I believe using the county and large city populations is the simplest way to represent a district.

I would like you to offer a game for each of the 50 states. A solution could be sent to the states' governor. The governor could choose the best one or put the top three up for a state wide vote. This would let the people pick the boundaries that are most compact.

A game player could esentially do the same selecting as your game. If county populations are used, a pixel inside the county would indicate the selected distict's border.
