Absolutely YES.
the Rs and Ds have like the mafia craved the districts to their liking and it keeps the status quo political machines on the local levels going.
break the R&D election cartel. YES redistrict by population.
Plus it'd force various local groups to speak to each other and take more voters seriously.

I support non-partisan commissions creating Congressional districts with oversight by the Department of Justice because this is a federal election issue and not a state election issue.

No. I support mail-in balloting that has been highly successful in those states that have adopted it. Of course person could still vote in person if necessary at a polling location (e.g. a post office, police or fire station) but the primary voting is done by mail.

I'd prefer someone like Neil DeGrasse Tyson that's proven himself to be highly intelligent. I don't even know what Tyson's political ideology is but he's a part of the intelligentsia and I'm really tired of stupid presidents.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

(1) Yes. That's the way were supposed to be drawn. Prior to gerrymandering. But then the government decided that the solution to gerrymandering was gerrymandering in the opposite direction. Now it's become just a game, and it's going to get worse as more groups are considered disadvantaged.

(2) No. We already have prevoting voting. Absentee voting.

(3) Only of the Phillipines, Australia, or that other planet where you live.

(1) There are no federal elections. All elections are local.

(2) And still you will vote for yet another.

Elections for federal offices are federal elections conducted by the states. Please read the US Constitution (Article I, Article II, and the 17th Amendment). The States are required to carry out the elections specified for the federal government under the US Constitution and in compliance with federal election laws (Supremacy Clause).

I'm aware of the Constitution. But as you say, states are required to carry out their elections for deciding electoral college participants subject to certain federal requirements.
