LWV People Powered Fair Maps Day of Action

Join the League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties for our Fair Redistricting Maps Day of Action. Our events on April 29 are a call to action as we work to ensure that the public's voice is heard and the new redistricting maps are drawn fairly using 2020 census data.

Colorado now has two independent redistricting commissions, one for Congressional Districts and one for Legislative Districts, balanced with Democratic, Republican, and unaffiliated appointees. They will need input from the public as part of their map drawing process.

Remember that public input will be needed by both the Congressional and Legislative Commissions as part Colorado's independent redistricting process.

View their calendar and find links to watch and listen to their public meetings: Redistricting Commissions

In other states, the League of Women Voters work to oppose extreme political gerrymandering and partisan redistricting.
