‘Gerrymandering removes pesky choices from your ballot!’
This ad is ridiculous … but so is gerrymandering.
Gerrymandering is the longtime practice of partisan politicians drawing our state’s voting maps to unfairly favor their own party. In turn, opposing candidates have little or no chance of winning in these manipulated districts, and often don’t bother to run at all, leaving voters with no choice and no voice in who represents them.
Fortunately, a growing number of citizens and political leaders across the political spectrum agree that we need independent redistricting reform.
