Video of the Day: The Redistricting Song

The Census data have been compiled, and it's now redistricting time for state legislators. If you're wondering how the process works -- and how politics can determine voting representation -- watch the full length of this video, composed by Andrew Bean and David Holmes for the public-interest journalism foundation ProPublica.

The song morphs from a Schoolhouse-Rock-esque country sing-along into a dark, hip-hop/showtunes number about Gerrymandering and disenfranchisement.
