Filibuster Carve Out To Ban Gerrymandering
We’re calling and writing our Senators demanding they pass legislation to ban partisan gerrymandering before states draw convoluted voting districts that undermine the will of the people. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer pledged to take up voting rights as a top priority. We must make sure the Senate passes necessary legislation now.
We’re telling them they must demand that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer call the Senate back into session, and do everything they can to ensure that the Congress passes legislation to ban partisan gerrymandering. Because there will not be 60 Senators willing to vote for this, the Senate must eliminate the filibuster or at least enact a filibuster “carve out” to protect voting rights.
