Buttigieg: Gerrymandering Is Also a Form of Domestic Election Interference

‘When politicians can pick out their voters before the first vote is cast, it changes how an election will happen’

RUSH EXCERPT:

BUTTIGIEG: “I would argue that gerrymandering is election interference, because when politicians can pick out their voters before the first vote is cast, it changes how an election will happen. The kind of racial voter suppression that we saw, especially but not only in The South, has I think changed election outcomes and it’s part of why we need the 21st century voting rights act. Steps taken right here in New Hampshire to make it harder for students to exercise their right to vote. I view that as a form of interference too. So we need to make sure, when we’re looking at both foreign and domestic anti-democratic activities, that we shore up our systems and reform our processes.”
