Changing the election district process

If you are tired of our state legislature drawing election districts every 10 years in a manner to best ensure their re-election — gerrymandering — you might be interested in a statewide petition drive to change the process. Under the umbrella of Yes for Independent Maps, a group has drawn a proposed amendment to the Illinois Constitution that would place the redistricting power in the hands of a bipartisan/nonpartisan independent commission. The petition drive is to place the proposal on the Fall 2014 ballot.
