Redistricting - the process of re-drawing political districts - affects whether we have the ability to elect candidates of our choice, to represent us on the issues that we care about. In 2011, we have a once-in-a-decade opportunity to ensure that the lines drawn for state senate, assembly, and congressional districts fairly represent us.Added to the calendar on Tuesday May 3rd, 2011 9:45 AM
Check out our short video to learn more about what redistricting is and why it matters, on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqBRz7yu4vs.
The new Citizens Redistricting Commission is holding a series of public input hearings across the state to hear from local leaders and community members such as yourselves about the areas where you live. This 2-hr workshop will provide all the tools and information you need to meaningfully contribute to the dialogue, and ensure your voice is heard. No experience necessary. All are welcome.
