What is gerrymandering?
Gerrymandering is the dividing of a state, county, etc., into election districts so as to give one political party a majority in many districts while concentrating the voting strength of the other party into as few districts as possible.
The DISTRIX game system introduces a new method for political redistricting in which the political parties form election districts in a high-stakes duel. Since both parties are involved, the game is a potential remedy to America's gerrymandering problem. If politicians want to draw their own election districts, why not ask them to do it by playing a competitive game against the other party?
Another way to increase the fairness of our election districts is to use an automatic algorithm to create fair maps.
