If you have an opinion on gerrymandering, the Legislative Committee on Redistricting needs to hear from you!


Austin Public Hearing – Tuesday, Sept. 10

 

Ahead of next year's census, Texas's House Committee on Redistricting is holding a series of public hearings around the state. The first is this Tuesday, September 10 at 1:30 p.m. at the Texas Capitol Building, Hearing Room E1.030 in Austin.

Ensuring fair and representative maps is a high priority issue for the League nationwide. Gerrymandered districts strip rights away from voters. League members are asked to attend and speak. Some who work until 5:00 hope to come and speak as well, if the hearing goes on long enough.

LWV resources to help you prepare are located here. More are available here.
