Gerrymandering. The primary voting system. The U.S. Electoral College.
These are just some of the problem areas with our system of choosing and electing those who represent us in each branch of government.

1. Gerrymandering is what happens when districts are divided up to favor one political party over another.
Also known as "redistricting," gerrymandering is when the incumbents who are in power after an election get to draw the boundary lines to make up districts of voters that benefit their own party. It's super hard to explain.
