Demand Redistricting Reform in PA – Sign Our Petition

art for fair districts

Pennsylvanians for Fair Elections, in conjunction with Fair Districts PA, needs your help in the fight for redistricting reform in the Keystone State.

Fair Districts PA, a nonprofit nonpartisan coalition, is asking voters to sign a petition supporting reform efforts in Harrisburg, including a set of companion bills that call for an overhaul of the redistricting process.

Here’s Fair Districts PA’s message:

When we vote, we want our elections to be fair. We want our votes to count and we want our voices to be heard.

Partisan redistricting allows politicians to choose voters instead of allowing voters to choose politicians. The process happens behind closed doors, with no transparency and no accountability to voters.

Fortunately, a bipartisan group of legislators from both the Pennsylvania Senate and House wants to change that and put real power back into the hands of voters.

Companion bills SB 484 and HB 1835 (not yet posted online) would create an impartial, independent citizens redistricting commission with rules ensuring fairness and transparency.

Join Fair Districts PA in asking our legislators to pass these constitutional amendments to restore accountable government that is of, by and for the people.

We encourage you to sign so that Pennsylvania voters are put back in control of choosing their politicians instead of the other way around.

The petition can be found here.
