Redistricting Trainings and Public Meetings

Mark your calendars for citizen trainings in English and Spanish on the map-making software, DistrictR, and the first-round of public meetings and hearings by the Citizen Redistricting Committee to hear input on communities of interest and accept map submissions.

Dismantle Prison Gerrymandering

With a new round of redistricting set to take place, states like New Mexico have a chance to end a practice that has long distorted our democracy.

PRISON GERRYMANDERING IN NEW MEXICO

The Supreme Court requires state- and local governments to update their electoral districts once per decade to ensure that each district contains the same population, which gives each resident equal representation in government. However, the U.S. Census Bureau counts people where they are incarcerated, not where they are from, so when jurisdictions rely on raw Census data which does not reflect their real populations, democracy suffers.
