Redistricting Reform

LWVMD/MC is fighting for the passage of HB43 and SB90, and HB463 and SB110 currently under consideration in the 2019 MD General Assembly. The bills establish a fair and transparent process to draw new, fair district lines after the 2020 census.

Maryland’s Congressional Districts are among the most pathetically gerrymandered districts in the country.

Learn about our campaign for redistricting reform in Maryland.

Sign the support pledge, receive email alerts, and keep current on developments.

Get involved. Attend a meeting in Rockville on March 7, 2019 at 6:30pm or contact us at mdw@lwvmocomd.org.
