Redistricting

The All IN For Democracy Coalition establishes the Indiana Citizens Redistricting Commission (ICRC). The ICRC will hold a series of public hearings around the state to take input on what criteria the public wants used in drawing of new Congressional and state legislative maps.  Join this important conversation at the virtual public hearings to discuss how new maps for Congress and the Indiana legislature should be drawn.   Redistricting will impact federal and state elections for a decade – it is extremely important that Hoosiers from all over the state are a part of this conversation.  

Register for the public hearings in advance by clicking on the red district.
