New Mathematical Technique to Define Electoral Districts

10 Jul 17

Mathematicians at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now developed a method that allows the proficient calculation of optimally sized voting districts. The experts have created this technique to make the democratic election much meaningful. The voting districts must have same sizes suggested the experts, during earlier interviews. They also added that when populations shift, districts need to be redistributed -- a complex and, in many countries, controversial task when political parties attempt to influence redistricting.

The developers have created this method while keeping in mind that when constituents cast their vote for a candidate, they assume it carries the same weight as that of the others. Additionally, voting districts should thus be sized equally according to the population as well as few boundaries need to be redrawn as per the addition in the populations’ size. The scientists have stated that the newly created method will help to stop gerrymandering that often happens in the political parties.
