SLAY THE DRAGON follows everyday people, outraged by what they see as an attack on the core democratic principle that every person’s vote should count equally. This election year, we’re joining together with grassroots partners to put an end to gerrymandering. Because this issue impacts each state differently, we’ve created a map to help you navigate how gerrymandering affects your state and community. SLAY THE DRAGON arrives on demand April 3.

Delaware

Process

Delaware's legislative lines are drawn by the Legislature by ordinary statute, and are subject to the Governor's veto. The Legislature can override vetoes with a three-fifths majority in each chamber. Delaware has only one at-large congressional district.

In addition to the federal requirements of one person, one vote and the Voting Rights Act, Delaware law requires that state legislative and congressional districts be contiguous. Unduly favoring or disfavoring a person or party is prohibited.

Issues

The Governorship is up for election in November 2020. A Democratic win will lead to continued single-party control over redistricting. A Republican win will lead to bipartisan control.

Actions

In 2020, support candidates who advocate for fair districting.

In 2021, use public input to persuade the Legislature to draw fair districts.

  • Obtain Delaware redistricting data from OpenPrecincts.

  • Use software tools such as Dave's Redistricting App and Districtr to draw district maps showing either (a) what a fair map would look like, or (b) where the community you believe should be better represented is located.

  • Submit these maps to the Legislature as a public comment, which is accepted in written format.
