Gerrymandering blatantly manipulates voting districts to serve political interests. Independent commissions in each state would take redistricting out of the hands of politicians and make elections more competitive to actually serve the people.
If the people of a state want to avoid gerrymandering, they’ll encourage reform with the way that they vote, and the representatives they elect. It isn’t the federal government’s place to mandate that states use a certain method of redistricting.
