I created BetterDistricts because I believe that there is currently an issue with how our government works. The United States is a Representative Democracy. We elect officials to go to Washington D.C. and act on our behalf. The problem that I see is that these representatives aren’t equipped to properly listen to us.
The average congressional district has ~750,000 people living in it, but most of our representatives are relying on a few phone calls, emails, and faxes to determine how they should vote. I think that there should be a better way.
