Delaware Libertarians Call for Alternative Party Representation on Redistricting Board

Dover Post via Third Party and Independent Daily:

Dover resident Will McVay is chair of the Kent County Libertarian Party, and he thinks
Levy Court’s Democratic majority should take this redistricting cycle as an opportunity to involve minor political parties.

At Levy Court’s January business meeting, McVay, who gained notoriety during a failed run for the state House last fall, publicly asked commissioners to consider appointing someone who isn’t a member of either major party to the redistricting commission.

“Our belief is that they should include an in independent voice, whether that’s a Libertarian, an Independent Party member or someone who’s not in any party whatsoever,” he said. “We think that they should have a voice that’s not representing either the Democrats or the Republicans.”

    Let the politicians/judges, etc. draw their lines, THEN let people pair up and swap ballots among themselves for elections. A swing of a few percent can nullify partisan gerrymanders. How could such a thing be done?
    There are several ways I know of. Just consider the possibility, you may have better ideas. The end is to get the correct ballot to the correct voter for the correct election.

    I agree with McVay. Another independent party should also be represented in the Redistricting Board aside from the Democrats and the Republicans. It’s time another party comes in to break the monotony of the two majority parties.
