An End to Gerrymandering

To be delivered to The North Carolina State House, The North Carolina State Senate, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

We, the undersigned, call for legislation that would put an end to the practice of allowing political parties to choose voting districts. This legislation shall require states to form a politically balanced citizen's electoral jury that would decide the boundaries of voting districts based solely on population numbers.
There are currently 5,100 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

Voters should select their representatives, not the other way around. The two political parties have made a complete mess of our electoral process by corrupting it at its foundation. In an effort to make elections more about which side has the better ideas and to reduce the political divide in our country, I propose that the power to create voting districts be taken away from whatever partisan faction is in control and that voting districts be created by a "jury" of citizens tasked with creating political voting districts with only raw population data, no voter registration information, to work with.
