пересмотр границ избирательных округов
Предпринимается раз в десять лет после проведения переписи населения по решению законодательного собрания штата при изменении квоты представительства [reapportionment] членов Палаты представителей [House of Representatives] Конгресса США, а также представительства в законодательное собрание штата. Обычно такое решение принимается в пользу партии, обладающей большинством голосов в законодательном собрании. И хотя Верховный суд в 1962 обязал штаты создавать равные избирательные округа [one man, one vote], остается много способов при нарезке округов обеспечить преимущество своей партии [gerrymandering]
