Independent Redistricting Commissions


Gerrymandering, or blatant partisan manipulation of congressional voting districts designed to favor their own candidates, often when their parties would be otherwise outnumbered, is a persistent cancer on the body of American politics. Combined with ranked choice voting and nonpartisan primaries, independent redistricting commissions would act as a welcome beacon of fairness and prevent the major parties from unduly swaying the outcomes of our elections.  We are fortunate in Colorado to have independent redistricting since 2018.  But we must stay vigilant to not revert to partisan gerrymandering and slowly make every district in Colorado more competitive.
