Gearing Up for Redistricting
We have a once-in-a-decade opportunity to stop gerrymandering in its tracks in Florida, but we’ve got to get to work right now.
We’ve all seen the consequences of gerrymandering in our state: after lawmakers drew new congressional maps in 2012, Republicans won almost ⅔ of Florida’s congressional seats — even though only a little over half of Floridians voted for them.
This problem is widespread — and wherever it happens, gerrymandering denies voters our right to fair representation and a meaningful choice at the polls.
While our lawmakers’ maps were struck down by the courts in 2016, it was too late. The damage was done — communities all across Florida were silenced and deprived of the chance to make their voices heard.
That’s why one of Common Cause Florida’s top priorities throughout 2021 and 2022 will be holding our Legislature accountable and ensuring that all Floridians have a voice in who represents us.
