In America, elections are supposed to represent the will of the people, not politicians. But partisan lawmakers can manipulate voting maps to keep themselves and their colleagues in power. We need to reform the rules and make the process of drawing districts impartial, so that our government is of, by, and for the people.

When politicians have the power to draw electoral maps, they manipulate district lines to divide or pack together certain populations, keeping themselves and their party in power. It's called gerrymandering -- and it's a major threat to our democracy.

Thankfully, we have a proven solution: independent, impartial, and nonpartisan citizen-led redistricting commissions. States like California and Arizona have shown that these types of commissions work, creating an unbiased process that gives our communities a voice. 

By taking the power to draw district maps away from gerrymandering politicians, and giving it to We The People, we can ensure that everyone is heard in our democracy, and that our process is fair and transparent.  

We must end gerrymandering and fight for fair maps -- so that all of our votes count.
