Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy.

Dear Friend:
This is a huge victory for Pennsylvanians. Moving forward, the votes of Pennsylvanians will not be diluted by the unconstitutional extreme partisan gerrymandering of its congressional districts. In the 2018 election, voters will be voting under new, fairer maps. 
Yesterday’s decision was also a huge victory for the League of Women Voters. The League in Pennsylvania initiated this lawsuit in the summer of 2017 because voters deserve the right for their voices to be heard regardless of party affiliation or address. This victory is an important first step toward slaying the gerrymander.
With yesterday’s decision, voters can focus on educating themselves on the candidates and issues on their ballot while making sure they are registered and plan to vote on May 15.
This success is just one of the many steps that are being taken in Pennsylvania and in other states across the country in our work to reform redistricting. The League will continue to fight for fair maps by passing legislation and supporting citizen reforms to implement an independent redistricting process.
