UNOE General Meeting – February 2018

Join us for our February General Meeting on
Thurs., Feb. 22 – 6:30pm
at the C.K. Newsome Center.
Our guest speaker will be Meg Connolly, with the League of Women Voters of Southwestern Indiana, as she focuses on efforts to curb gerrymandering and to promote redistricting reform in Indiana.

– Every 10 years, following the census, the constitution says states are to look at changes in population distribution and, if necessary, redraw legislative districts for US Representatives. States also look at district lines for state legislators. The next census is in 2020.

– Since we have been drawing lines for legislative districts, parties (or groups drawing the lines) have tried to do so to maximize their own influence on the legislature. This is known as gerrymandering.

– During the 2018 Indiana Legislative Session there will be discussion of Redistricting and a new Senate Bill: SB 136. Be an informed constituent.

Join us at the General Meeting in February!
