Episode 6 — And a Child Shall Lead Them: Kyle Hynes Schools His Elders Draw the Lines

    • News

They hadn’t met Kyle Hynes, a 16-year-old from the place known as Happy Valley, who knows more about the Voting Rights Act than plenty of congresspeople. Hynes won $5,000 for his congressional map of Pennsylvania, becoming a star of the biggest public mapping contest in the nation’s history. He’s a walking, talking rebuke to the notion that only expert partisans can draw election districts.
