I'd also like to see our voter ID requirement overturned, but redistricting would be great.

I honestly think people don't pay attention to this kind of thing, and they write off "the south" as some monolithic conservative backwater. It's true, parts of the south are real conservative backwaters, but it's not a monolith. Like, Democratic candidates got 53% of the votes in the US House elections 2 years ago, but the GOP got 9/13 seats--because of the atrocious gerrymandering. (Blah blah yes the dems did it too, but when you have 13 seats and a 55/45 constituency, you'd expect it go to 7:6, not 6:7, and DEFINITELY not 4:9. And previously, it was a lot closer to 7:6.)

In short, civics is woefully neglected in this country.
