Take an early morning run at gerrymandering and join the League of Women Voters of Salt Lake in the 2018 5K “Gerry-Meander” Fun Run/Walk
You'll understand why an independent advisory commission on redistricting is so important to the voice of the people. You as voters should pick your politicians, not the other way around. Every 10 years, each state is required to redraw its voting districts to correspond with changing populations. Your representatives are drawing their districts around the voters they want, sometimes creating curious districts that push out voters they don't want to hear from.
At the Gerry-Meander, you can check out the sponsor tables, grab snacks and T-shirts and hear pep talks from Republicans, Independents, and Democrats who want to "slay the Gerry-mander" in Utah.
You'll stop along the way to ask "Where's Gerry?" and earn prizes to pick up at the finish line.
