Redistricting Reform Legislation
Redistricting Reform/ Alternatives to Winner-Take-All: For years, FairVote has highlighted how our nation's reliance upon winner-take-all elections and single member districts for Congressional elections without national standards has left our voting process open to the abuses of unfair partisan gerrymandering. Insiders for decades have known how powerful redistricting can be for elected officials to protect friends and undermine opponents. By gerrymandering the districts, legislators and their political cronies have used redistricting to choose their voters, before voters have had the opportunity to choose them.
FairVote has released a detailed, 50-state legislation report for redistricting reform. The report details efforts in the states to rein in the partisan abuses of the current redistricting system.
