I just learned about a type of gerrymandering that blows my mind. A thread. (With real action at the end, I promise! Silver lining coming.)
Catching up on #PodSavethePeople with @deray, @samswey, @MsPackyetti + @ClintSmithIII. A thing that the Census Bureau is doing: Making residence rules for incarcerated people so that their legal home residences don’t matter, but the locations where they are incarcerated do.
This means that even though incarcerated folks can’t vote, their bodies are being counted in the communities where they are imprisoned rather than in their home areas. This is called Prison-based gerrymandering.
