"Maryland is considered one of the more blatantly gerrymandered states. A federal judge wrote that the 3rd District, held by Democratic Rep. John Sarbanes, was 'reminiscent of a broken-winged pterodactyl, lying prostrate across the center of the state.' ” Baltimore Sun, July 16, 2017
"Gerrymandering, in a word, is why American democracy is broken." The Washington Post, Feb 10, 2017
So just what is gerrymandering? How is it practiced in Maryland? How does it affect you??? The League of Women Voters of the Mid-Shore is hosting a series of public information sessions on Redistricting Reform in Maryland to answer these questions and to learn more about the issues, current proposals for reform from the Governor's commission, and what the Tame The Gerrymander coalition is doing to push for reform. This is part of a continuing series on Making Democracy Work. Learn how you, too, can make a difference!
