Re-Districting? What Would You Do?

With many state legislatures around the country getting set to redistrict the electoral map, it will be interesting to see how Republicans and Democrats fight over party lines and expected votes.  The re-districting is done after each census and can have major political ramifications.  In fact, many have pointed to the last re-districting after the 2000 census as a key to a Republican wave across the country.

Ever wanted to see if you could make some positive change during this time?  The USC Game Innovation Lab created a game which allows players to adjust district lines.  The ReDistricting Game offers a set of missions based on a particular political party.  Players are asked to arrange lines based on equal representation as well as such factors as creating a district with 75% or more African American residents.  Test your mettle!
