Redistricting Under Way

The every-10-year  process for setting Congressional Districts mandated by the US Constitution and  state law is now underway. In addition to congressional districts, local redistricting involves any county, city, school district, or community college district that is divided into districts or divisions. These local governments are required to review their current district boundaries and redistrict based on new population figures from the census.  We are fortunate to live in a state the provides for independently drawn districts, to avoid gerrymandering and other partisan interference in the process, but democracy always requires vigilance, so citizen input and participated is needed.

The League of Women Voters’ goal is to ensure that districts are drawn in a way that will keep communities whole. Keeping communities in a single political district increases the ability of communities to influence or even determine who gets elected to represent that district. This also makes it more likely that representatives will listen to the community and be responsive to its needs.   See how you can impact this process by making use of the following resources.
