Best wishes for 2022 to all!

If you have an interest in (American) politics and maps, you will certainly know what is gerrymandering.  For those who don not: it is the redrawing of census/voting district boundaries for reasons of benefiting your own political party in future election outcomes.  The Republicans are known for it, but the Democrats do it as well sometimes.  It is a long-term battleground, and usually they become court cases.
