Gerrymandering? Let’s call it what it is: cheating!


    Hosted by Arizona Ground Game

    If you thought AZ Voters settled redistricting already, you are correct!

    But, even after a Supreme Court ruling upheld the AZ Independent Redistricting Committee (IRC) final maps, some AZ Legislators are out to undermine the power of our vote once again.

    In 2001 AZ Voters were successful in protecting our votes with the creation of the AZ Independent Redistricting Committee. Independently balanced voting districts, that the IRC created, are for the benefit of the people, not politicians! Apparently, some AZ politicians want the power back in their hands; They introduced the Bill, SCR1034, which will do just that.
    This is against the will of AZ Voters!
