    I was happy to hear Kevin Baas on your podcast. I have celebrated his AutoRedistrict program since he contacted me through my FB page when he introduced it some years ago. Congratulations on speaking at the Harvard Conference. They will know, as I do, of lots of states that are joining the movement toward reform of redistricting. Lower courts are upholding elections where voters are are having their maps redrawn by independent commissions rather than state legislators.

Voters can learn much history and current information from Common Cause, League of Women Voters and individuals such as myself on my FB page, Ban the Gerrymander, Let's Get Serious.
