From New York to Florida to Ohio to California, Common Cause has been successful in improving the redistricting process in many states. Learn how to make a difference in your state to make sure your elected representatives listen to the public. The way district lines are drawn affects how politicians represent constituents’ interests. When district lines represent their communities, we have a greater ability to elect candidates of our choice and hold politicians accountable.
