It's time to end gerrymandering in Ohio. For good.
THE PROBLEM: GERRYMANDERING
GERRYMANDERING: is when electoral districts are drawn by incumbent politicians to maintain their power, with the intention of influencing elections to their advantage.
MAIN GOAL OF GERRYMANDERING: For the political party in power to maintain their power by rigging districts in their power.
HOW RIGGED DISTRICTS HURT OUR
Democracy works when citizens choose their representatives, but gerrymandering takes power from the people and lets representatives choose their voters.
Gerrymandering is a way to rig political outcomes by creating districts that always vote for the same political party.
It allows the party in charge to stay in charge by weakening the power of the opposing party, and making individual voters less impactful.
The more this happens, the more untouchable legislators become.
Gerrymandering distorts democracy, leading to political outcomes
and policy decisions that aren’t what the majority of voters actually want.
