Full Representation: Uniting Backers of Gerrymandering Reform and Minority Voting Rights.

The article presents an exploration into redistricting, gerrymandering, and political representation in the United States as of 2004. Details are given noting the verdict of the 2004 Supreme Court case Vieth v. Jubelirer which, despite evidence of gerrymandering, upheld a state redistricting plan. Episodes are mentioned where incumbent Congressmen have allegedly redesigned districts to foster their own political ends. Further discussion is given discussing the adoption of winner-take-all full representation systems in elections since the 1980s. Calls for electoral reform from the political sector are then given.
