Indiana is one the most gerrymandered states in the country.

Voters should choose their representatives, not the other way around.
Redistricting Commission (SB 159) SUPPORT
Senate Bill 159 would create an independent nonpartisan commission composed of elected officials and members of the public. Through a transparent process, the commission would help ensure district lines are drawn in a fair way that accounts for the size of a district’s population and its racial and ethnic diversity.
