Not necessary at the federal level for sure. My congresscritter is in DC not down the road.

Pass a constitutional amendment eliminating congressional districts. All candidates for the House run at large with preference voting.


Problem solved.

Looks more like problem created to me. Just make them stick to natural borders (county lines, rivers...) and straight lines. With your plan every federally elected official from the state of California could be from LA, rural representation would eliminated entirely.
