It will be really difficult to draw line that are fair to both parties.
Needs to outlawed in every state it oppressed votes
There was a documentary on this awhile back. Shows the most extreme versions of gerrymandering.
Both political parties used the same damn excuse, "We have to, because they do it."
It's lazy, and stupid. Should be outlawed everywhere.
I don't care which party you're with.
Blaming it on one person having a fit, only does your personal bias, not theirs.
Good. having An Independent Commission would help
Bipartisan? That can't be possible... Mitch McConnell will have puppies if he hears any ground has been rightly given back to Democrats.
No way this is bipartisan..... Moscow Mitch will not have it...
Ok the number of people here not understanding the purpose of redistricting is alarming considering that this is newsvoice. Imagine you live in a cohesive community in district A, there's 500 of you that vote 90% republican, and the federal govt decides that they're gonna build giant apartments on the edge of your town for <insert euphemism> ppl. They'll be able to house 1000 new people there. This edge of your town borders a district with 5,000 people in it, they vote 90% Democrat. Redistricting puts this new group among similar neighboring group that better "represents them".
REPRESENTS. REPRESENTATIVES. get it?
There have been lots of good maps drawn by commissions and courts. It isn't hard to draw fair maps if that's what you are trying to do.
The problem is state legislatures trying to bias things toward their interest.
Sure it will be difficult but needs to be done. I would like to see lawmakers pressure leadership to deal with this. and yes I'm talking Madigan.
