Looking at the image below, this shows how drawn voting districts should be replace by optimally compacted districts. The reason being that it makes the voting a more accurate representation of the trends. The state legistator and majority party of the house are the ones who decide the voting districts and essentially “cut an arbitrary line” through the state. ┬áThe division of the states, allows for the “losing side” to still have enough districts to potentially win.

    This is a really cool article. Looking more into the article it shows you a couple states with its current divisions verse the computerized ones and it it shocking. I think its super important to end gerrymandering and make the country more politically even. I think the computerized method could be the future and could end gerrymandering once and for all.
