Description

Presented by Carol Kuniholm, Co-Chair of Fair Districts PA, and Election Reform Specialist for the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania

Hosted by Bryn Mawr College • March 30, 7-8:30 pm.

Pennsylvania’s current redistricting rules let politicians pick their voters, not voters their legislators. Carol Kuniholm will discuss the history of gerrymandering in PA, its impacts on various communities, and Fair District PA’s proposed plan for redistricting reform. Redistricting reform is a non-partisan issue and reforms that have passed in other states have had the support of voters across party lines. Fair Districts PA hopes to create an independent citizens commission for drawing district boundaries in time for PA’s 2020 redistricting.
