This
year, elected officials in state
governments across the country will use
the results of the 2020 Census to choose their
voters, rather than giving voters the chance
to choose them, by drawing unfair Congressional
district maps in a process known as gerrymandering.
In this talk we'll look at some mathematical
methods of quantifying the partisan
gerrymander and discuss the role of the U.S.
Supreme Court in informing such methods.\n\n
