    League members act:
    Rally on steps of SCOTUS

     

    Joined by Gov. Larry Hogan and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, League members from North Carolina and the National Capital Area held a March 26 rally on the Supreme Court steps while inside the Justices deliberated the limits on partisan gerrymandering for  cases in Maryland and North Carolina. A June decision is anticipated. LWV will continue to educate voters about gerrymandering’s threat to democracy and follow Schwarzenegger's advice: "terminate gerrymandering."

    Ending gerrymandering in Maryland

    Maryland’s congressional districts are currently among the most pathetically gerrymandered districts in the country (click map to enlarge), due to the redistricting process, which, in 2011, took place behind closed doors and was designed to promote unfair partisan and incumbent advantages.

    The League of Women Voters is fighting gerrymandering and has won victories in California, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
