JERRY MANDER STRIKES AGAIN (Mod­er­ately dif­fi­cult)

Reader's Digest (Canada) - - Brainteasers -

Your name is Jerry Mander, and you must draw your town’s vot­ing dis­tricts so that Ge­orge Green be­comes mayor in­stead of his more pop­u­lar ri­val, Les Laven­der.

This map shows which can­di­date each house­hold sup­ports.

Di­vide it into five dis­tricts of three con­tigu­ous house­holds so that Green will get the ma­jor­ity of the votes in a ma­jor­ity of the dis­tricts. For a dis­trict to be con­tigu­ous, each house­hold must share a bor­der with at least one other, and shared cor­ners don’t count. The tree rep­re­sents a park that won’t be a part of any dis­trict.
