    Michael McDonald + Micah Altman: participatory redistricting

    in Technology

    Join us for a discussion with Michael P McDonald and Micah Altman of the Public Mapping Project, which is an organization that is using open source software to enable people to create their own redistricting maps and send them to local government for potential adoption. 
    Using a tool called District Builder, citizens can make their own maps based on demographics, voting patterns and legal requirements (among other criteria) and submit them to local government for consideration for redistricting.
    Michael McDonald is Assistant Professor of Government and Politics in the Public and International Affairs Department at George Mason University, and a visiting fellow in Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution. His research interests include voting behavior, redistricting, Congress, American political development, and political methodology.
    Micah Altman is a Senior Research Scientist and Director of Archiving and Acquisitions at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University and Non-Resident Senior Fellow at The Brookings Institutions.
