This week, Senior redistricting and voting counsel for the Brennan Center’s Democracy ProgramMichael Li joins Abby to help explain the redistricting process.

Michael explains the origins of redistricting and how the political party that is in power has the discretion to redraw political maps. Later, he discusses why redistricting matters increasingly to voters and how it could potentially slip into gerrymandering.
