Subject: Political Science
What is an independent redistricting commission? What is an effective way to politically balance an appointed commission? What impact would an elected commission have on redistricting?
An independent redistricting commission is a body of state officials that determines congressional and/or legislative jurisdictions. An effective way to politically balance an appointed commission would be to establish a non-partisan or bi-partisan body. Arizona, for an example, has an appointed independent redistricting commission with 5 members. 2 conservative, 2 liberal, and 1 independent. The impact of an elected commission with an established jurisdiction for each seat would set a precedent that could heavily impact elections. If gerrymandered, the majority party could offset effective representative districts, among other things.
