Our government is failing us. Our legislators say they’re going to fix things, and yet, every year nothing changes. One reason is gerrymandering, a trick politicians use to manipulate voting districts to benefit themselves and keep themselves in power.
When politicians gerrymander, the people lose our right to hold them accountable. So they only listen to special interests and the people lining their pockets, yet do nothing to fix our state’s real problems: our crumbling roads, struggling schools, and closing hospitals.
We are fighting for fair maps in Oklahoma by holding politicians accountable to the promises they have made for the upcoming redistricting process.
