Re-thinking How Maryland Election Districts are Drawn

Redistricting_Photo.jpgThe old saying that “Voters should choose their elected officials, not vice versa” evokes today’s central problem with Maryland’s redistricting process. 

Aided by some clever animation and goofy videos at this month’s Trending Topics, you will find out how the lines are drawn in Maryland and why it is so difficult to put a system in place that produces compact and contiguous shapes.

The League of Women Voters of Maryland (LWVMD), along with our coalition partners, has been working for years to reform our method of shaping election districts. Come find out what you can do to help move this effort forward.

Nancy Soreng, co-president of LWVMD and an LWVMC member, will be our speaker at this event.
