19. After 200 years of redistricting, we need some STANDARDS.


No, I don't have a set of standards to propose. But off the top of my head, here are a few that come to mind:

1.) Geographical integrity - no districts that look like salamanders.

2.) Demographics - obviously districts can and will vary in their racial makeup, but extremes must be avoided.

3.) Party affiliation - when other options are available, it should be illegal to create one district that is 80/20 and five surrounding it that are 40/60 the other way.
