Candidate Overview

Castro has not pledged to fix democracy first.

He is one of the few candidates to put forward an effective plan to combat gerrymandering with his proposal for independent redistricting commissions.

Here are some policies he could adopt to improve his platform:

  • Public financing of elections
  • Ranked-choice voting
  • A full end to felon disenfranchisement
  • End voter ID and other voter suppression policies
