Now that the Confederate flag is removed from the Statehouse grounds, the next goal is to eliminate gerrymandering. Through gerrymandering, districts are created so each party can have “safe” districts which assures the election of their particular candidates.

Gerrymandering creates further division. The natural geographic boundaries should be used rather than cutting through different counties to create these “safe” districts. Candidates would then have natural and diverse districts and have to respond to the diverse constituency in their district.
