2021 Redistricting Reform
Fair redistricting means voting maps that put the interests of average Nebraskans first, instead of the legislators who drew them or the political parties they represent. Common Cause is working within the Unicameral to bring about meaningful reform to the way we redistrict.
Instead of allowing legislators to draw their own districts based on political affiliation and voter records, we are advocating for rules that would require nonpartisan census data and public input to draw maps.
And we're getting Nebraskans more involved in the redistricting process. By talking to people in areas across the state about the locations and places that define their communities, our goal is to change the redistricting structure from a top-down, partisan approach to grassroots, publicly involved process.
Working with a diverse group of organizations and policymakers, we believe real change is possible before the end of the year.
To help, sign our Redistricting Pledge. With your help we can show the unicameral that Nebraskans want real reform, not just the same old process.
