Pennsylvania Reapportionment Commission Approves House and Senate Maps

This process is far from over, but we know that our democracy works best when We the People are represented by elected officials who share their values, lived experiences and priorities. Pennsylvanians deserve nothing less.

Pennsylvania Voters Committed to Free and Equal Elections Submit Proposed Congressional District Plan

Today, a group of Pennsylvania voters who are deeply committed to free and equal elections have weighed in on congressional redistricting for the Commonwealth.

A new proposal could allow the GOP-controlled legislature to draw gerrymandered lines with little oversight.

“This is absolutely a regression from what we already have,” said Khalif Ali, the head of Common Cause Pennsylvania, a nonpartisan good-government group. “When I was reading through it, I was just amazed.”

A new lawsuit asks the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to intervene in creating a new congressional district map for the Commonwealth, as concerns grow the legislature and governor will not be able to reach an agreement in time for the 2022 primary.

Khalif Ali, executive director of Common Cause Pennsylvania, said they are also asking the Supreme Court to end what's known as "prison gerrymandering," when people in prison are counted as residents of the county where they're incarcerated, not where they would normally vote.

TODAY: Common Cause Pennsylvania to Testify in Favor of State Legislative Map Changes to Fairly Represent the Growing Diversity of State’s Population

The Pennsylvania Legislative Reapportionment Commission will meet today to hold a fourth hearing on the proposed maps for the State House and Senate districts. The public is invited to provide testimony, during which Common Cause Pennsylvania will advocate for changes to the proposed maps that provide equal voting power to everyone in the commonwealth, regardless of race, ethnicity, or zip code.

Khalif Ali Joins Plaintiffs Calling for Fair Maps

On December 31, 2021, Common Cause PA's Executive Director Khalif Ali joined plaintiffs from across the state in filing an Application to Intervene in the ongoing congressional redistricting litigation currently before the Commonwealth Court.
