The book shows how redistricting is done and how it should be done. It discusses election district delimitation procedures in United States, Great Britain, Germany, France and Slovenia. These democracies tried to limit gerrymandering by applying strict districting standards or independent redistricting bodies. Both measures proved not be unsuccessful. Any human involvement in redistricting process produces bias. The book argues that the only way to get rid of the bias is by getting rid of human involvement in redistricting process. The book introduces so-called automated redistricting process . It is a process, composed of strict rules, which have to be followed by either computer or person, but they always end up with only one district plan. There is no room for discretion. The book discusses past automated redistricting proposals and intriduces some new ones.
