Redistricting Panels Named

“The process for voting and redistricting should be fair and not partisan. Fair maps count everyone and reflect the political will of voters from across the state,” LWVMO President Marilyn McLeod said after Governor Michael Parson named his appointments to bipartisan redistricting commissions. “Districts should be drawn to empower voters to pick the leaders who will represent them, not politicians picking the voters.”

The League will be contacting the new commissioners to request transparency as they work to draw new House and Senate district maps. The first meeting is set for the State Capitol on August 10. Click on the People Powered Maps image at right to see the list of commissioners.

LWVMO President Marilyn McLeod explained the redistricting process recently on the “Radio Friends with Paul Pepper” program. Watch the video at https://youtu.be/z0958wB6NNA.
