Disclaimer: When this website says a district is gerrymandered, it does not intend to assign blame or point fingers; It is merely stating that a district APPEARS to be gerrymandered. Moreover, I am not an expert on this extremely complicated and still unsolved issue, so understand that this site, while mostly accurate, misses some key nuances.
