The Libertarian Podcast, with Richard Epstein: “One Man, One Vote”


For more than 50 years, redistricting exercises have been guided by the principle of “One Man, One Vote,” the notion that legislative districts must be roughly equal in population. Now, however, the Supreme Court is being called upon to clarify that standard. Is it an equal population of residents? An equal population of eligible voters? Should non-citizens or children count? Are some voters having their influence inappropriately diluted relative to people in districts with high levels of ineligible voters? We tackle the history of this controversy and the newest developments in this week’s edition of The Libertarian, which you can listen to below or by subscribing to the show via iTunes.
