Redistricting Reform


Seize Your Moment


This promises to be a challenging legislative session for achieving redistricting reform.  Tim Wesco of Elkhart county has been named the chair of the House Elections Committee.  He is NOT a fan of redistricting reform.   Bills must get out of committee before they can even be debated and voted on in the full House (or Senate).  

A brighter note is Senate Bill 91, authored by Sen. John Ruckelshaus (R), Sen. Mike Bohacek (R), and Sen. Jon Ford (R), which would establish a redistricting commission “because it’s the right thing to do.”  It has been assigned to the Senate Committee on Elections chaired by Sen. Greg Walker.

During his 2016 campaign, Governor Holcomb said that he supported redistricting reform and hoped that it would be in place before the next round of electoral map drawing in 2021. 

Ask him to make that happen by publicly announcing his support for redistricting reform—specifically for a transparent and bipartisan process that puts citizens, not politicians, in charge of redistricting.
