The 2020 census will prompt a new round of redistricting, and potential gerrymandering. Thanks to Tufts' Voting Rights Data Institute, these 52 students are ready to push back.

    How to Make Voting Fair
    Every time voting districts are redrawn-be it by state legislatures, judges, or commissions-the people with the pens make decisions that carry enormous potential consequences. They can intentionally bundle similar groups of people together so that they make up a concentrated super-majority in a given district.

    Digging in Their Heels
    At a time when political division is heightened and the parties in Washington are deeply polarized, it is worth asking whether there is any payoff for politicians to work together. Will they be rewarded by their constituents for getting things done, balancing different interests for the public good and working across the aisle with civility and respect?

President Donald Trump appears to believe the country needs and wants hard-line policies. Members of Congress haven't stopped him from carrying out those policies.
