Last night, David Daley and I appeared at our local bookstore, Labyrinth, to talk about gerrymandering: its effects on democracy, how technology has made it worse, and what can be done to prevent it. It’s is the subject of his new book, Ratf**ked. Thanks to Labyrinth Books and to Princeton Public Lectures, the discussion is archived for your viewing pleasure! Watch on Vimeo.
In the discussion, we talked about the role of math in diagnosing partisan gerrymanders. I have developed simple statistical tools to help provide a legal standard. These standards are available for your use at gerrymander.princeton.edu.
