    Some of these states have provisions for voter initiatives to be put on the ballot.  Take the lesson learned in California where an independent commission draws up the districts.  The best solution is to end the gerrymandering once and for all.  It would be better for our democracy, make the Congress more representative and probably work to the Democrats advantage in the short and long-run.   It is also the best hope between now and 2020 to fix the mess that 2010 created when the GOP took over these blue/purple states.   Get initiatives on the ballots where possible to change how the districts are drawn.  Then the next time the GOP takes control they will not be able to redo whatever we might undo.
