Gerrymandering allow the dominant political party
to pick the voters rather than allowing the voters
to pick their representatives.
Gerrymandering is a corrupt political practice that enables the dominant political party of a state the authority to redraw Congressional and state legislative districts with their state.
In my opinion legislative districts should be contained within the cities and counties. If each county was entitled to one representative for every 100,000 people and the county had a population of 500,000, that county would be apportioned 5 seats in the state legislature. Five districts within the county would then be created by the County Board of Commissioners.
Cities with populations of 50,000 or more would be entitled to one district for every 50,000.
Each county should be entitled to one senator and there shall be one assemblyman for every 50.000 people living within the county. Counties with less than 50,000 people will be combined with other counties to create legislative districts.
Each city or county hall shall have one Congressional Representative for every 100,000 people. Districts shall be
This plan would eliminate artificially drawn boundaries districts forever.
Reducing the size of districts and increasing the number of representatives will improve the representation of the people.
All cities with a population of 50,000 or more will be entitled to one Congressional Representative for every 50,000. Cities less than 50,000 will be combined with an adjacent city to create a Congressional District.
If the states continue to create new Congressional Districts every ten years,, the districts should have approximately 1/3 republican, 1/3 democratic and 1/3 independent voters.
