We need to end the practice of Gerrymandering.
As President Obama put it in his State of the Union speech this year, “we’ve got to end the practice of drawing our congressional districts so that politicians can pick their voters, and not the other way around.”
A permanent fix for partisan gerrymandering would be to take redistricting entirely out of the hands of self-interested lawmakers and give it to independent commissions. In California and Arizona, both of which have adopted such commissions, legislative races have become more competitive than the national average as measured by the smaller margins of victory. That’s good for voters, and for democracy.
