    Gerrymandering, like disinformation, is easy to recognize, but not easy to fix.

    How does specifically redistricting neighborhoods for the clear purpose of manipulating the OUTCOME of the Democratic vote, DIRECTLY EFFECTING THE NUMBER OF PARTISAN SEATS, get a name as affectionate as “Gerry”? How is this NOT illegal? (gerrymandering)

    Buckeye here and despite two ballot initiatives passed to end gerrymandering, it is still alive and well. Gerrymandering, the process of using a map and voting data to set the results of elections ten years in advance. In the last two Presidential elections, this state has been about 54 percent Republican, yet our US House delegation is 75 percent “red”, same with state Senate, while state House is 63 percent GOP.

    Only way repubs can win elections. Let everyone vote they never win again. They run on hate and divisive issues, have not run on policies since 80s

    Reform districts and term limits and finance reform would mean one thing. Not one person in congress would be reelected, go figure why they shoot it down.

    These Republicans for their gerrymandering should be called out in public constantly. In every restaurant and in every airport. Where is the outrage that should be obvious?
