League of Women Voters of Kentucky to Release Report on Redistricting
LOUISVILLE, KY-The League of Women Voters of Louisville will hold a press conference:
Monday, December 18, 2017, 11:00 a.m.
Capitol Annex Room 113, Frankfort, KY
The League has prepared a report to highlight concerns about redistricting in the state. Experiences with gerrymandering in Wisconsin, Maryland and North Carolina resulting in lawsuits, as well as the 2012 court challenge in Kentucky requiring corrective action in a special session are cause for concern about future efforts in the Commonwealth. Members of the redistricting committee and the state board including president Wanda Lynch and author of the report, Susan Perkins Weston, will release the report and discuss goals for improving the process in the Commonwealth.
The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
