Please review the material under the heading of Congressional Districts and California’s Top Two Primary system.
The California Citizens Redistricting Commission has placed the task of drawing the Congressional (and state) districts into the hands on a balanced public body. The result is a series of “non-political” single member districts.
After reviewing the material on redistricting, Gerrymandering, California’s Citizens Redistricting Commission and Top Two Primary System- post a comment on your thoughts on the entire process?
