Support Gerrymandering Reform in Pennsylvania

To be delivered to The Pennsylvania State Senate

Petition Statement

Legislation proposed by State Senators Lisa M. Boscola and Mario M. Scavello calls for a commission of independent citizens to develop a plan for redistricting. The commission would act as a system of checks and balances, free from conflicts of interest
There are currently 11,328 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

When a politician wins an election, he or she is allowed to draw their own districts as a tactic to ensure their own re-election. A politician should not be allowed to choose their voters. Rather, the voters should be allowed to choose their representative. By utilizing a nonpartisan committee, we can end this practice so that districts are straightforward and represent the needs of the community rather than a political party.
