Question and answer
Why was gerrymandering made illegal? What problems could result if this practice were used? Why does it make elections unfair and inaccurate?
Gerrymandering is an American slang term which refers to redrawing the boundaries of a district so that the new district favors a particular party or candidate, typically the one in power. In addition to being a colorful piece of 19th century slang, [ it is also a serious problem, and can be used to disenfranchise voters. Because of the temptation to gerrymander, political districts are
carefully examined when they are redrawn, and some disputes are taken to court. Gerrymandering is also illegal in the United States code, meaning that people convicted of gerrymandering will face consequences. ]
