Show Notes

Civics for Life and the O'Connor Institute welcome Professor Nick Seabrook as he joins Liam Julian, director of Public Policy at the Sandra Day O'Connor Institute, for an online conversation on Gerrymandering.

Gerrymandering, according to Webster, is "to divide or arrange (an area) into political units to give special advantages to one group when voting districts are designed to achieve specific political outcomes."

Nick Seabrook, an authority on gerrymandering and constitutional law, discusses his new book One Person, One Vote: A Surprising History of Gerrymandering in America and, just weeks before our nation heads to the polls, breaks down how new voting districts following the 2020 U.S. Census could affect election results for years to come.
