This is madness! You won’t believe how politicians are able to rig elections.

Everyone knows that politicians can be a sneaky bunch and that our Democracy is being hijacked to favor the wealthy and powerful, not the other 99%. What you might not know is how politicians have been able to rig elections to win seats. Gerrymandering is the term used to describe the manipulation of electoral boundaries to favor one politician or party over another, and boy is it in full force.

There have been some high profile stories in the news about this ahead of the election. In Florida, the GOP had so insanely gerrymandered Congressional districts that Terry Lewis, a Florida circuit judge, voided the boundaries and forced the state to redraw fair congressional districts. There’s a lot more that needs to be done. Educate yourself on this issue, speak out against it, and most importantly, VOTE!
