Public Forum: Redistricting. One of a series of free public forums on the topic of redistricting. Identical discussions have been held in various Pierce County locations during the Winter and Spring of 2018.

Join a non-partisan discussion of the process to determine our voting districts and how it affects our voice in the democratic process. Discuss:

  • How has redistricting changed?
  • What is gerrymandering and is it constitutional?
  • How does technology affect your voting rights?
  • How can you influence the 2021 process in Washington State?
