Description

This investigation rooted in an analysis of census block data and voting records revealed the level of racially polarized voting in the community of Teaneck and raised questions of whether minorities received fair representation in politics and government. A Justice Department investigation into whether the town should replace its at-large elections with a ward system to ensure better minority representation prompted the newspaper to pursue its own investigation.
