Arizona PIRG Applauds Supreme Court Decision Upholding Independent, Voter-Approved Redistricting

For Immediate Release

Today’s court decision is a win for a responsive, representative democracy where we, the people, have a say over how our leaders are chosen. When politicians get to pick the constituents that vote them into office instead of the other way around, it means less accountability. In 2000, Arizona voters approved a redistricting system to make elected officials more representative of and responsive to Arizona citizens. We applaud this decision that sides with voters over politicians.
