Right now, politicians in Virginia pick their voters instead of the other way around. In fact, Virginia is one of the worst gerrymandered states in America. If you are tired of self-serving politicians drawing districts to ensure their hold on power, now is the time to act. The Virginia State House is considering an amendment to end partisan gerrymandering and return power to the voters… but they could just as easily do nothing and keep the corrupt status quo. That's why they need to hear from thousands of Virginia voters. It's the last opportunity to make a difference before voting districts are redrawn in 2021.
Join RepresentUs members across America for the national phonebank to pass an anti-gerrymandering amendment in Virginia. We'll call Virginia voters and connect them to their local representatives to show them that voters are putting this issue front and center.
Represent Virginia will meet with politicians in person to demand action in a Citizen Lobby Day. Join the lobby day and show politicians that the people demand action.
Right now, politicians in Virginia pick their voters instead of the other way around. Virginia is one of the worst-gerrymandered states in America, allowing self-serving politicians to ensure their re-election by making safe districts that were drawn or influenced by political appointees and insiders. This is our last opportunity to stop gerrymandering before voting districts are redrawn in 2021. If we don't win now, we'll have to wait another 10 years to fix Virginia's corrupt status quo.
