About UsThe Fair Elections Project is working to change how politics works in the United States and help end the partisan gridlock that grips the nation. When elections don’t really matter because the district lines determine which party will be in control, the people don’t have a voice. This is contrary both to our historical tradition of fairness and the Constitutional requirement that all voters are equal citizens.
Our work towards our mission
FEP is fighting for fair redistricting around the country by inspiring and supporting litigation, legislation, and public advocacy to stop partisan gerrymandering. The goal is to end map-rigging, so that instead of politicians choosing their voters, voters can choose thier elected officials, and elections will again be meaningful.
The current co-chairs are former State Senators Dale Schultz (R) and Tim Cullen (D), who each served as majority leader of the Wisconsin Senate when their party was in control. Our Director is Sachin Chheda, who is also one of the co-founders.
