A redistricting crisis is now upon us. This surprising, compelling book tells the history of how we got to this moment--from the Founding Fathers to today's high-tech manipulation of election districts--and shows us as well how to protect our most sacred, hard-fought principle of one person, one vote. Here is THE book on gerrymandering for citizens, politicians, journalists, activists, and voters.

"Seabrook's lucid account of the origins and evolution of gerrymandering--the deliberate and partisan doctoring of district borders for electoral advantage--makes a potentially dry, wonky subject accessible and engaging for a broad audience." --The New York Times


Nick Seabrook, an authority on constitutional and election law and an expert on gerrymandering (pronounced with a hard 'G'!), begins before our nation's founding, with the rigging of American elections for partisan and political gain and the election meddling of George Burrington, the colonial governor of North Carolina, in retaliation against his critics. The author writes of Patrick Henry, who used redistricting to settle an old score with political foe and fellow Founding Father James Madison (almost preventing the Bill of Rights from happening), and of Elbridge Gerry, the Massachusetts governor from whose name "gerrymander" derives.

One Person, One Vote explores the rise of the most partisan gerry­manders in American history, put in place by the Republican Party after the 2010 census. We see how the battle has shifted to the states via REDMAP--the GOP's successful strategy to control state governments and rig the results of state legislative and congressional elections over the past decade. Seabrook makes clear that a vast new redistricting is already here, and that to safeguard our republic, action is needed before it is too late.
