Redistricting Learn More
- The League of Women Voters supports policies that ensure fair and open elections through redistricting, encouraging voter registration and access to voting, and the use of voting equipment that makes it easier to validate the results of elections. To that end, the Greenville League supports: REDISTRICTING, Continued support for the League's one-person, one-vote position.
Partisan gerrymandering is a real problem in South Carolina, and the League of Women Voters is taking action to educate voters and to encourage advocacy to reduce partisan and incumbent-protective gerrymandering, so that voters are choosing their representatives and not the other way around.
The League's goal is redistricting reform in which district lines are drawn based on appropriate and enforceable criteria that do not favor partisan interests or incumbents, and in which the drawing is done by an independent, nonpartisan commission. Redistricting will happen in 2021 based on the 2020 census results, and we aim to achieve reform by then.
The League is mobilizing now to make the needed changes so that this next round of redistricting prioritizes the interest of voters and not parties or incumbents. Our immediate goal is to educate voters about the need for redistricting reform and to encourage advocacy with our elected representatives.
