Redistricting Reform

Redistricting reform will have to wait another year.

HB1014 received a hearing in front of about 300 people in the House Chambers, but no vote was called. While this is disappointing, we still have time to work this issue before the 2020 census.

The Indiana Coalition for Independent Redistricting will regroup and plan our next strategic steps.

Thank you everyone for your unbelievable commitment, support, enthusiasm and engagement. It is important to continue to advocate for this issue. Let your elected officials know how important this is to you and that we are not going away.

Keep using the fact sheets and talking points to educate legislators and the public that are available on our Local League page on this website: http://lwvnet.org/lwv/easyweb/preview/LocalLeague.html

Contacting Your Elected Officials

Need to find out who your elected official is and how to contact him or her? Visit the Indiana Secretary of State's http://www.IndianaVoters.com site and look for the link "See Who My Elected Officials Are." In Marion County, you can also use the Marion County Election Board's Voter Information Portal (http://maps.indy.gov/VIP/). Both sights will also help you find your elected official's contact information.

Phone calls and e-mail are the most effective ways to reach an elected official - and your contact does make a difference. Keep your message focused. Be respectful. When applicable, reference the specific piece of legislation (i.e., bill number) that concerns you. Remember to include your postal address and other contact information. (This is true for letters to the editor as well!)
