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.

Hawaii

Process

Hawai'i has a partisan redistricting commission. Software may be available to submit plans, as it was in the previous cycle. Note that free software is being developed nationally.

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

Issues

The success of this Commission will depend on public input.

Actions

Advocate for an independent redistricting commission.

Take advantage of Hawai'i's extensive public comment process.

  • Stand up for your community of interest at public hearings.

  • Obtain Hawai'i 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 maps to the Commission as a public comment.
