It happens quietly at the beginning of each decade, in back rooms and behind closed doors. In this explainer, the League of Women Voters of the Charleston Area lays out what's wrong with our current redistricting process.
What can you do?
1. Call your legislator and say you want redistricting reform. An in-person visit or phone call is more effective than an email.
2. Help inform the community about this important but complicated issue. Members from the LWV are happy to attend community meetings and talk about gerrymandering and redistricting reform. Contact Shayna Howell to set up a speaker. And share our Redistricting Explainer with your networks and on social media!
As the legislative session draws nearer, additional action will be needed - We'll keep you posted!
