Our view: Remaps hurt voters
The Illinois Constitution allows politicians to redraw legislative and congressional district maps every 10 years after the census is taken.
Because politicians control the process, the ones in power blatantly use it to their advantage.
In 2001, Republicans controlled congressional redistricting, while Democrats controlled legislative redistricting. Both processes produced crazily drawn maps that herded voters into odd-shaped districts to give each side maximum political advantage.
