In 2010 Republicans gerrymandered South Carolina Congressional District 5. Gerrymandering is the redrawing of district lines to benefit one specific political party. They do this by determining which neighborhoods may vote a certain way - usually by looking at economic background, education, and race distribution - then strategically drawing them out of the district.
And it is happening all over the country in ways that are making it increasingly difficult for democrats to win.
THIS is why your vote matters now more than ever. Special elections historically have record low turnouts. If we get just 20,000 democrats in the district to vote for Alexis Frank, we can win this.
But we need your help!
