Analysis: How do you spell "gerrymandering is bad?" With a font made out of preposterous districts. https://t.co/65Df6tzJWu— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) August 3, 2019
"In #NH, the two Congressional districts are not gerrymandered, but the executive council, senate and house districts certainly are." @grayno2 https://t.co/Xk2s6beN5W— NH Senate Democrats (@NHSenateDems) August 12, 2019

Gerrymandering undermines our democracy. That’s why I cosponsored the #ForThePeople Act, which would set up nonpartisan, independent redistrict commissions — aimed at stopping people in power from sabotaging your voice. pic.twitter.com/NL7XGYdoEY— Mark Takano (@RepMarkTakano) August 12, 2019
3 of Ohio's districts made the cut for a new font Ugly Gerry. District 12 is "B", District 4 is "G" & District 10 is "R". We ???? that folks across the country detest gerrymandering as much as we do. Thanks to the creators for keeping it in the conversation. https://t.co/LQgeLJLTqe— ACLU of Ohio (@acluohio) August 2, 2019

Attending the launch of the Harvard Data Science Review. Second half of the day is on the mathematics of gerrymandering. Here’s a font made up of tortured districts. pic.twitter.com/J6w1nL1jPM— Mark Hansen (@cocteau) October 25, 2019
If the exact intersection of your interests is graphic design and a deeply abiding hatred of partisan gerrymandering, then have I got the font for you: pic.twitter.com/w1j6iQvANh— Morgan Baskin (@mhbaskin) August 1, 2019
There’s a font made from gerrymandered congressional districts...— ???? Mark Helenowski (@MarkHelenowski) August 1, 2019
And I just so happen to sit next to Leading Voting Rights Expert @AriBerman.
So, you know it had to happen ???????? pic.twitter.com/qmiLShnnB9
So gerrymandering (one of my favourite words) now has its own font. Can't vouch for whether these are legit US congressional districts but... cool font. https://t.co/EbpkFXqcsr— Kerry Campbell (@kerrywcampbell) August 27, 2019

The Gerrymandered Font: a typeface where every letter is a map of a different gerrymandered American district. When your Congressional districts are so tortured that they literally spell out the alphabet, your democracy might have a problem. https://t.co/WTPVDb8YEm— Adam Conover (@adamconover) August 19, 2019
This is at once brilliant and depressing. https://t.co/utff0NFGeV— Theo Francis (@theofrancis) August 5, 2019
From everyone here at the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, we want to wish you a very Merry Christmas!— NDRC (@DemRedistrict) December 25, 2019
This Christmas we used @UglyGerry font to share awareness around the fight to end gerrymandering!#HappyHolidays pic.twitter.com/9lNlCDAucA
Remember when someone created a readable font using gerrymandered districts? Let's rewrite history by putting an end to partisan gerrymandering. Voters deserve fair maps. #PassTheVRAA #RestoreTheVRA https://t.co/yt69gQJZ7x— VT Sec. of State (@VermontSOS) December 24, 2019
