Play the ReDistricting Game!

The next BRC meeting for the redistricting process for Supervisorial Districts is tomorrow (3/30/11).  Here’s a link to the meetings/agenda page:  http://redistricting.lacounty.gov/index.php/schedule/ I am putting this information here because there will be a demo/presentation regarding the online tool to be used; showing the ESRI Redistricting software.

One thing I ran across last week that I wanted to share too was this very clever and informative ReDistricting Game.  Developed by folks at the USC – try it if/when you have some time.

The Redistricting Game is designed to educate, engage, and empower citizens around the issue of political redistricting.  Currently, the political system in most states allows the state legislators themselves to draw the lines. This system is subject to a wide range of abuses and manipulations that encourage incumbents to draw districts which protect their seats rather than risk an open contest.

PS.  It’s a little addicting.
