The Problem:

Gerrymandering

Gerrymandering is the insidious way in which political parties draw absurd legislative districts to their own advantage. Gerrymandering distorts our democracy by allowing for politicians to choose their voters, instead of voters choosing their political leaders. Gerrymandering insulates politicians from their constituents.


The Solution:

Independent Redistricting Commission

An Independent Redistricting Commission would be comprised of 11 people, made up of Republican, Democrat and Independent citizens, that would draw districts using only census data, not voting or news preferences.

 

We're working with allies to propose amendments to the SB 22 (which we do not support in its current form) that has passed out of the Senate State Government Committee to the floor of the Senate.  

We are working to keep intact both HB 22, the “Redistricting Reform Constitutional Amendment” and HB 23, “Redistricting Reform: Independent Redistricting Commission for Congressional Districts”
