It is important for citizens to stay engaged in this redistricting process, but several have asked how they can do this. There are three specific ways that come to mind.
Call or email your legislator.
Since the elected caucus leaders make the redistricting decisions, you can ask your legislator to represent your redistricting concerns to their caucus leader. Request that they vocalize support for a plan that does not compromise our constitution.
Contact the Commission
The Commission has an email form you can use to contact them directly. Share your thoughts and concerns with them regarding redistricting. The public comment period on the new plan ends May 11.
Testify on May 2
Do not fall into the trap of thinking someone else will do something. Every citizen who speaks out against the dilution of their voice matters. By leaving the sidelines, you, too, can make a difference.
