How to Fix Gerrymandering

Make state legislatures bigger.

He thinks larger legislatures would be more representative of the ideological compositions of the states and that would make them unwilling to gerrymander.

But the first claim is questionable and the second groundless.

The constitution does not require that we elect house members by single member districts.

So don't.

Elect them at large, statewide, according to any one of the several formulae available.

Heck, there's no reason all the states need even use the same formula.
