Ugly Gerry is a new, free font created by a pair of activists allegedly fed up with the US government’s convenance of gerrymandering voting districts.

Every letter in the font is composed of images of gerrymandered US voting districts. Though a couple belletrist (the X, for example) are composited from more than one commune to make them legible, most of them are clear representations of just how antic US backroom are.

The font’s creators, Ben Doessel and James Lee, made it to raise acquaintance and accommodate a method for blank voters to beef accessory gerrymandering. The duo, in a press absolution provided to the media, stated:

After seeing how janky our Illinois 4th commune had become, we became absorbed in this issue. We noticed our district’s vague, but shaky U-shape, then after seeing other belletrist on the map, the idea hit us, let’s create a book so our districts can become agenda graffiti that voters and politicians can’t ignore.

For those alien with gerrymandering, it’s the action by which US voting districts use more cool borders to bind voters and limit who they can vote for by party lines instead of geography.

Late night television host and actor John Oliver ran a articulation answer the action in 2017 where he discussed the issue and used the plight of Autonomous Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries. He ran for State Assembly in 2000 and, though he lost, his strong assuming afraid local Democrats to the point that in 2002, when he ran again, they’d gerrymandered the commune to ensure even Jeffries’ neighbors couldn’t vote for him.

Here’s what the map looked like in 2000 when voters in New York’s 57th commune voted:


And here it is in 2002:


Here’s the same map with Jeffries’ house on it.


In Jeffries’ case he was baffled by his own party’s accessory gerrymandering efforts. However, while both Democrats and Republicans are guilty of accessory gerrymandering, the Republicans have made it a basic belvedere of their politics. In the wake of a recent ruling from the US Supreme Court giving US states to deal with gerrymandering any way they choose, it’s become clear that the GOP will abide to use this accurate method of voter abolishment to disadvantage autonomous opponents as much as possible.

Vicky Hausman, the architect and co-CEO of Forward Majority, a political alignment committed to angry accessory gerrymandering, afresh wrote an op-ed for the LA Times wherein she said:

Both parties are guilty of gerrymandering, but Republicans have made it an art form. In fact, the GOP has proved that, as long as it controls statehouses, it will be hell-bent on attention and advancing its agenda through redistricting and other moves, no matter the cost. Republican statehouses have tried to accuse judges who challenged their gerrymandered maps, bare power from newly adopted Autonomous governors, chaotic voter-approved ballot initiatives, passed a slew of voter-suppression laws abbreviating their grip on the electorate, and of course, manipulated commune lines to the point that they held on to more than a dozen gerrymandered seats in Assembly even during the better Autonomous wave since Watergate.
