If this past election has taught us anything, it’s that every vote truly matters and must be counted.
To make sure that a fair elections process happens every time, we need to produce fair election district maps, and end the process of Gerrymandering. This is a bi-partisan issue.
In 2011 there were no rules against partisan Gerrymandering, and no Federal regulations about it.
During the upcoming redistricting process, we all could play an active role in how our political maps are drawn.
With the current districting in Ohio, for example, 55% of voters get 75% of seats. That’s a 20% difference. Vote shares and seat shares should be close. Democrats are packed into 4 districts because of distorted boundary lines. Therefore there’s a disconnect between how constituents feel, and how legislation is acted on.
The 2020 Census Data probably won’t be available until March, but it’s not too early to begin advocating for fair Election District maps.
