Redistricting Reform

A public hearing for our Dayton area on redistricting reform has finally been announced. It will take place on 24 August at Sinclair Community College, Ponitz Center room 172. Free parking is available in the basement garage. Details are also on our Events page. Our League has an opportunity to take the lead in facilitating community engagement on this issue by helping to prepare public testimony for the hearing. If you are interested in submitting testimony, in person or in writing, please review the instructions for submitting redistricting testimony.

The following resources published by LWVUS can help us in this endeavor.

Redistricting Action Kit. This page is a one-stop-shop for tools and resources related to the League’s work on redistricting: templates, messaging guidance, background materials, etc.

Toward the bottom of that page are links with guidance on giving general testimonies, testimonies for redistricting, and examples of testifying about communities of interest.
