We must ensure that fair redistricting is a nationwide priority.
On April 29, 2021, the League of Women Voters hosted events around the country to increase public awareness and engagement around the redistricting process, and make sure the public's voice is heard.
Why is Redistricting important?
New district lines can be drawn to intentionally decrease voters' power based solely on their political party. We believe redistricting should be fair and transparent. Our program, People Powered Fair Maps™ advocates for redistricting processes that eliminate partisan and racial gerrymandering nationwide.
