Should I Sign the Illinois Redistricting Petition?

Should I sign the Illinois Redistricting  Petitition? After listening to a discuss of this topic on WBEZ, I asked myself this question regarding this potential amendment to the Illinois Constitution. The truth is that this amendment is no panacea,  but it may increase political transparency and reduce partisanship.

Shady redistricting practices is not just a Chicago problem. The frustration with the current redistricting system is immense even in Southern Illinois where only 16.7% approve of the current system.

In the end, this amendment may not pass in November, but for now it should at least get enough signatures to get on the ballot.

Should we amend the Illinois redistricting process?
