The battle for redistricting will take center stage tomorrow as the Maryland State Legislature enters a Special Session and begins the debate on maps proposed by the Bipartisan Citizens Redistricting Commission and the Partisan Legislative Redistricting Commission.
Maryland Democrats are preparing to, yet again, gerrymander our great state and deny voters the fair representation they deserve in Washington.
I have already contacted my elected officials in the State Legislature and urged them to vote for the Citizens Redistricting Maps, have you? If you haven't, please click here, and do so now.
This is the map proposed by the Bipartisan Citizens Redistricting Commission. A common sense approach to redistricting in Maryland based on the input from people across our great state.
This is a comparison between the current map and the map proposed by the Partisan Legislative Redistricting Commission. A failing approach to redistricting in Maryland with little input from people across the state and designed with corruption in mind.
The map proposed by the Legislative Redistricting Commission received an F by the Princeton Gerrymandering Project because it gives significant advantage to one party, allows districts to remain non compact, and has more county splits than there normally would be. How could their map even be considered? We have an opportunity to lead the charge in ending partisan gerrymandering, restoring the voice of the people, and finally allowing the PEOPLE to pick their representatives — not the power hungry corrupt politicians in the State Legislature that wish to maintain the status quo. It’s far past time for fair and balanced Congressional District Maps to become a reality in the State of Maryland. With the Bipartisan Citizens Redistricting Commission that Governor Hogan designed, and the maps they proposed, we can finally achieve that reality.
