Special master tasked with redrawing Alabama Congressional maps

Judges in Alabama have set a Sept. 25 deadline for new Congressional maps to be drawn.

Here & Now‘s Scott Tong looks at the role of special master with Rebecca Green, associate professor at William and Mary Law School and co-director of the election law program.
