2014 Redistricting Reform/Fair Map Amendment Updates
Redistricting Report for LWVIL Issues Committee October 17, 2014 Paula Lawson, Issue Specialist
Representatives from the groups that worked on the Yes for Independent Maps Campaign have had two meetings to evaluate the redistricting ballot initiative effort and to talk about next steps. At the meeting on October 10, 2014 six people were designated to work as a committee to develop a structure for running another campaign. Mary Schaafsma, LWVIL Executive Director, was designated to be on that committee.
A Redistricting Education Task Force facilitated by CHANGE Illinois will continue to invite feedback on the Yes for Independent Maps Campaign and educate the public about redistricting.
