There is a real urgency in Maryland to persuade our legislators to pass meaningful reform for our redistricting process during the 2019 session.
Since REAL REFORM can only be achieved through a constitutional amendment we have to get redistricting reform on the ballot in 2020, before the next redistricting process starts in 2021.
A constitutional amendment MUST be voted on by the PEOPLE, meaning that the Maryland General Assembly has to pass legislation THIS session to get reform in motion that will make a difference when the next census triggers the redistricting process.
Sign the pledge and tell the world you support redistricting reform in Maryland - before it's too late!
I support redistricting reform that includes:
1) A state redistricting process and standards that promote fair and effective representation in the state legislature and House of Representatives with maximum opportunity for public scrutiny
2) An independent citizens redistricting reform commission to carry out the redistricting process
3) Districting standards that require districts to be substantially equal population, geographic contiguity and geographic compactness
