Arizona Redistricting Meeting Friday Sept 9

The Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission will hold an official meeting in Tucson on Friday September the 9th.

Time: 3 p.m.
Place: Viscount Suite Hotel Conference Room
4855 E. Broadway

Agenda: Maps for the Congressional and Legislative districts will be presented with a lot of time scheduled for discussion. The agenda scheduled time is over 4 hours. More details can be seen at:

The next 10 years will be affected greatly by the final new lines. The goal, among the 5 other mandated criteria, should be to increase the number of competitive legislative districts (currently 3 of 36). The Congressional districts will go from 8 to 9. Questions will be allowed at the end of the meeting; this is a chance to see the process in action and is one of a series of meetings scheduled throughout the state. Do come if you can, even if only for a part of the meeting.
