Independent Maps on the Fall Ballot

Despite a very challenging ballot initiative process compared with Western states (Colorado, Washington, California, etc.), the group behind the initiative to reform redistricting in Illinois has claimed over 346,000 Illinoisans have signed their petitions. If correct (not too many false signatures), then we should expect the initiative on this Fall’s ballot.

While my infographic makes clear the potential benefits of the reform, the jury is still out. As I noted, the California example reformed redistricting AND opened up its primaries. I support both. Will one be enough?

What are your thoughts?

Should we amend the Illinois redistricting process?
