Voters, minus choice
Regarding Rob Christensen’s Nov. 11 column (“Reflecting on the ’12 elections”), the gerrymandering of congressional districts deprives many voters of a choice. If a district has been defined to strongly favor the candidate of one party, then there is really no choice for voters in that district. The candidate of the favored party will win. Such gerrymandering also prevents candidates from the other party from running because it would basically be impossible to win. The winners are predetermined by the favored party.
The same limitations occur in the state House and Senate races. Is limiting voter choice a good thing?
