Could it be true in the U.S. that living on one side of a street or another can impact whether a person’s vote adds to the ultimate win or lose column for the candidate of their choice? It sure can. Elections are won or lost district by district, and exactly how those lines and maps are drawn can impact election outcomes for generations. Barry Burden, UW-Madison political science professor and the director of the Elections Research Center, will lend his expertise in helping to understand these concepts, particularly regarding the WI gerrymandering case facing the U.S. Supreme Court in 2018. Burden will discuss the case from a historical perspective and reveal the lasting impact on Constitutional law.
