The Princeton Gerrymandering Project does nonpartisan analysis to understand and eliminate partisan gerrymandering, which has soared since 2011.

Starting in 2018, we now do most of our work at a local level. Although the Supreme Court acknowledged the validity of our math (see our great explainer video), they still probably won’t act. State-level action can fill the gap through court cases and citizen initiatives. We help understand how proposed reforms connect to actual outcomes, using rigorous analysis and legally admissible maps. Our analysis is published widely, and our work is used by legislators and reformers of all communities, without regard to partisan affiliation.

This analysis requires intensive data-gathering, statistical analysis, and legal scholarship. All this costs time and money. If you are interested in supporting us, you can make a gift onlineIMPORTANT: In the special instructions field, paste the following: “S. Wang research on gerrymandering (PN0019) Account 24400-B0996-FA508”. You’ll receive an acknowledgement email; feel free to also email us separately at to let us know.

Thank you for your support!
