Please contact Sen. Walker (Senator.Walker@iga.in.gov; 317-232-9984) urging him to bring SB91 to committee before the February 21 deadline.
Rep. Tim Wesco , chair of the House Elections and Apportionment Committee, has HB1011 authored by Rep. Jerry Torr. Although this bill is not as strong as SB91, if Rep. Wesco would agree to hear the bill in committee, it would be a sign of support for redistricting reform and allow voters to weigh in on the issue. Please contact Rep. Wesco (email@example.com; 317-232-9753) and ask him to give HB1011 a hearing.

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!)
