Redistricting Reform: Not Justified by Political Science Research

Posted by Anita / on 09/03/2010 / 0 Comments

Professor Raymond La Raja of the U Mass Dept of Political Science, conducted a review of the field of research on redistricting in a recent article for the Annual Review of Political Science.  In this article, he concludes that "a review of the literature shows that major questions have not been resolved regarding the effects of redistricting on electoral competition, partisan polarization, and representation of communities of interest, especially minorities.  Moreoever, there is insufficient evidence from empirical research to justify any particular reform of the redistricting process." His article is posted here in the file cabinet under "Redistricting Reform"
