Breaking the Census: Redistricting in an Era of Mass Incarceration
by Peter Wagner, May 22, 2012
The William Mitchell Law Review has published my new article, “Breaking the Census: Redistricting in an Era of Mass Incarceration.”
Above the 98 footnotes is a highly-readable introduction to the problem of prison-based gerrymandering and its remedies. The final section of the article discusses best practices for state and local governments that wish to abolish prison-based gerrymandering.
The article is in Volume 38, Number 4, a special issue called, “Incarceration in the United States: Issues in America’s Jails and Prisons.”
