Description:

What exactly is redistricting? It is rather important in terms of American politics, and in most states state legislators get to draw the lines that create different political districts. This interactive game from the University of Southern California's Annenberg Center allows players "to experience the realities of one of the most important (yet least understood) aspects of our political system." After a lively introduction, visitors can learn about potential abuses within the system and they will also learn about reform initiatives that have been proposed. In the "Resources" area, visitors can learn about their own representative in the U.S. House of Representatives, take a look at their FAQ section, and learn a bit more via the glossary. If visitors enjoy the game, they can use the "Take Action" option to tell friends and others about the site.
