Elsie Law's Daily Dose Of The Law

"Gerrymander is a name given to the process of dividing a state or other territory into the authorized civil or political divisions, but with such a geographical arrangement as to accomplish an ulterior or unlawful purpose, as, for instance, to secure a majority for a given political party in districts where the result would be otherwise if they were divided according to obvious natural lines." -From, "Black's Law Dictionary"
