Stories from Around the State

This story was originally published by The City Journals.

Many voters have paged through a booklet of candidates and chances are, it came from the League of Women Voters. Perhaps a great number of voters also signed up to vote with the help of one of the League’s volunteers.

Republicans take the teeth out of redistricting initiative and divide communities of interest.

In November of 2018, voters passed ballot initiatives in three states to curb gerrymandering by reforming the redistricting process. Four years later, as redistricting battles once again sweep the nation, it’s time to look back at what those initiatives accomplished, and what still needs to be done. 

Proposition 4 promises an independent redistricting commission to draw lines for electoral districts: those in power will no longer shape their districts and choose their voters.

In states across the country, the League is working to put the power to draw lines in the hands of the people, not politicians.
