Neutral on Proposition 40

The Peace and Freedom Party is neither for nor against Proposition 40. Struggles over drawing district lines amount to competitive gerrymandering. The current system of “winner take all” elections in single-member districts controlled by one of two dominant parties will never represent the voters fairly or accurately. We need proportional representation of multiple political views and political parties. The choice between one redistricting plan or another is six of one, half a dozen of the other. Take your pick.
