Fall Football Lecture: Can Math Help Fix Bugs in Democracy?

November 11, 2017 by Sam Wang

During college football season, the Princeton Alumni Association hosts fall lectures for people who come back to campus for the home games. This morning I gave the pregame lecture for the Yale game. My topic: can math help repair partisan gerrymandering and the Electoral College? Great audience, great questions.

There is no video available. However, the slides are here. The real-life experience is possible, but only if I come visit!


Bill Moore says:

Well done and thanks for posting. Really a call to arms, backed by data, to eliminate Gerrymandering.
