End Gerrymandering in Indiana!


Continuing our efforts to help more people in northern Indiana learn about the negative impact of gerrymandering in our state -- on Saturday, October 20th, LWVCA partnered with the League of Women Voters of LaPorte County and Common Cause Indiana to host an informational workshop on redistricting reform. Citizens representing a range of constituencies -- the NAACP, Chambers of Commerce, the Northwest Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC), candidates for elective office, a better government study group, and more -- gathered to learn how we can establish an independent redistricting commission for Indiana. When politicians gerrymander voting districts, they secure their hold on power by diminishing the power of our votes. If we all work together we can END GERRYMANDERING IN INDIANA!

Governor Eric Holcomb supports redistricting reform. Let the Governor know you would like him to make it a legislative priority next year.
