Gerrymandering Louisiana and the future of redistricting on Where the Alligators Roam

Mike Stagg: Our Congressional Map Does Not Represent Us

Listen to Where the Alligators Roam with Mike Stagg for a detailed look at partisan gerrymandering in Louisiana and what we can do about it. In this week’s episode, Mr. Stagg explains how Louisiana’s U.S. House and legislative districts (State House, State Senate)¬†are unfair, how they got that way in the 2011 redistricting process, and what comes next for the 2019 statewide elections, the 2020 Census, and the next round of redistricting in 2021. This hour-long podcast of Where the Alligators Roam, heard weekly on Baton Rouge Community Radio Fridays at 5:00pm, is informative about what’s wrong with how electoral districts are drawn here and around the country, but also what reforms are needed to make electoral districting fairer and why redistricting is so important to everyone who cares about democracy in America, regardless of the specific issues you care about most or your partisanship.
