Redistricting Meeting Nov. 13

Redistricting-Matters-Social-Graphic-300x300Now that you’ve voted, here’s a subject we need to delve into — Redistricting or AKA Gerrymandering.

Join us on — 
Tuesday, Nov. 13th
7PM to 8:30PM
at the Holiday Inn Express in Roseburg
(375 W. Harvard Blvd)

Please join the League of Women Voters as we tackle a big issue: gerrymandering. With the 2020 U.S census coming so is the 2021 redistricting process. Come learn about our current redistricting process, how it impacts elections here in Oregon, and what reform could look like. There will be a time for Q & A as well. This is a space to talk about how we can move forward in advocating for fair representation, competitive districts, and a system that prevents abuse. Because we believe that voters should choose their representatives, not representatives choose their voters.

See our web page for more information.
