Utah’s current redistricting process is defective and requires reform. The Utah Constitution provides that “all political power is inherent in the people.”
But our current redistricting process undermines this fundamental Utah value because it allows incumbent politicians to manipulate the redistricting process by selecting the people who vote for them. This has resulted in less competitive races and politicians who prioritize their own personal interests and those of special interest groups over the needs of their constituents.
The Better Boundaries campaign is committed to bringing people of all political persuasions together to work toward combating the negative impact gerrymandering has had on Utah’s communities.
