Focus on Redistricting: Put Voters First

Redistricting

In keeping with the League’s longstanding mission, “Making Democracy Work”, The League of Women Voters emphasizes a nonpartisan approach to redistricting reform. Our goal is not to further the interests of a party or candidate, but of the voters. We want district lines drawn by an independent commission and we want criteria that do not include protecting the interests of incumbents or parties. This is essential to break through voter apathy (why vote if the conclusion is foregone?), to reduce polarization in our legislature and Congress, and to ensure that every legislator must make his or her case to voters representing the full range of citizens who live in around their communities.

To help explain the issues around redistricting The League of Women Voters of the Charleston Area has developed this informative slide presentation powered by Stacker.    

To explain Gerrymandering the League of Women Voters of the Clemson Area has developed a slide program Gerrymandering in SC .
