League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania Lawsuit

June 15, 2017 @ 1:30 pm

The League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania will be filing a lawsuit in the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court.

The League, with individual plaintiffs from each of the 18 congressional districts, is challenging the loss of representation caused by the partisan gerrymandering of our congressional district map.

All involved in the suit hope for timely redress of our existing distorted lines. All also agree that the ultimate goal is an independent redistricting commission ensuring a permanent solution to the current conflict of interest.

Redistricting efforts have had some great coverage lately. Two highlights we’d love for you to watch and share:

from PennLive: It’s time to fix PA’s broken redistricting system

from Fox43: Pennsylvania Divided: Gerrymandering in the Commonwealth

Thank you for your continued support as we continue to work to restore a representative democracy where every vote counts and every voice is heard.

It’s a marathon, not a sprint, but we are well on our way.
