About the Program

The creation of the Citizen Redistricting Commission (CRC) in 2008 marked a radical departure for California. Many expected the commission to be fairer to the two major parties and lead to more competitive elections. Has the first CRC plan met these expectations? PPIC researcher Eric McGhee will describe the measures he used to evaluate fairness and competitiveness—including his own measure, the “efficiency gap,” which is used in litigation currently before the Supreme Court—and outline his findings.

Please register in advance. There is no charge to attend and lunch will be provided.
