Since REAL REFORM can only be achieved through a constitutional amendment, we have to get redistricting reform on the ballot in 2020, before the next redistricting process starts in 2021.
A constitutional amendment MUST be voted on by the PEOPLE, meaning that the Maryland General Assembly has to pass legislation THIS NEXT session to get reform in motion that will make a difference when the next census triggers the redistricting process.
The 2020 census data is what informs the process of redistricting for the subsequent DECADE.
If nothing changes, we'll be stuck with the same old broken redistricting process we've had in Maryland for the previous 10 years!
This is the process that has given us a district that's been compared to blood spatter and a broken-winged pterodactyl.
And let's not forget how the state's legislative districts were drawn, with wandering fingers, and community slicing lines.
To ensure that we get a FAIR districting process in the next cycle, we have to act NOW. The clock is ticking!
