Know Before You Vote

Find out where your candidates stand on redistricting reform.

Fair Districts PA is tracking where all legislative candidates in the November 2018 election stand on replacing our hyper-partisan redistricting process with an impartial, independent citizens commission.

We asked candidates for U.S. Congress, PA Senate (only even numbered districts are up for election), and PA House to answer our survey question:

“What is your position on an independent citizens redistricting commission?”

Their answers will tell you

To see if and how your candidates responded, you can search by district number or geographically, using our interactive maps.
