Prof. Justin Levitt's Guide to Drawing the Electoral Lines

About this site

All About Redistricting is Professor Justin Levitt‘s guide to drawing electoral district lines: a one-stop shop for information about statewide redistricting, for state and federal office.  It reviews the substantive considerations that go into redistricting, the various entities and institutions involved in the process, and the rules, progress and litigation in each state.

A sample of Professor Levitt’s work directly related to redistricting is here.
