HB 236

ELECTION INTEGRITY

Amend 29 Del Code re General Assembly redistricting.  Redistricting is constitutionally require new legislative districts following the U.S. Census & is intended to ensure equal representation. Delaware’s current process allows the majority party gerrymander state legislative maps, preserving and expanding partisan political power. This bill proposes to leverage partisan self-interest to create a protocol that results in an equitable outcome.  This provides both sides getting equal “bites of the apple” & a mutually acceptable conclusion; includes safeguards.
