Keynote Title – Redraw The Lines
Ever been on a job interview? So you have a sense of how they’re supposed to go. But the regular job interviews known as elections have gotten out of whack lately.
The self-interest of candidates runs roughshod over the needs of the legitimate bosses of democracy, the voters. A key cause of this problem is the practice known as gerrymandering. In recent years, technology has enabled political operatives to take this partisan practice nuclear – nowhere more so than in our own state. A new initiative called Draw the Lines PA hopes to turn the situation around – by putting the key technology and data in the hands of ordinary voters and students. Learn about what Draw the Lines PA is up to from the person running the initiative.
