Event description
We're bringing back our Lobby Day during our Centennial Celebration week! Help us tell legislators it's time to get rid of gerrymandering!

About this Event

We have known for years that gerrymandering - the process of legislators drawing their own district lines to protect themselves or their party in future elections - is inherently unfair. Both parties do it when they are in charge, and it leads to elections that are less competitive and a polarized legislature that has less incentive to listen to constituents.

New district lines will be drawn next year following the 2020 Census, and we want an independent redistricting commission - not the legislators themselves - to draw the lines. A recent poll shows that the majority of South Carolinians agree. We need LWV members from around the state to gather on February 12 to let our legislators know that we want them to pass H. 3054 this year.

This Lobby Day will be even more exciting because it is the week of our Centennial Celebration! Please let us know if you can join us so that we know how many members to plan for.
