Elections, or Coronations?

I don't often find myself in complete agreement with the editorial page of the Daily Progress, but on the issue of injecting some actual competition into our supposedly competitive elections, I concur 100%. I continue to believe that nonpartisan redistricting is one of the most important reforms needed in our state. The gerrymandered districts we have now have produced little but political polarization and incumbency-for-life. As the Progress editorial concluded, "Virginia can and must do better." Amen to that.
