League of Women Voters hosts Redistricting: Reading Between the Lines May 27

Redistricting is required to comply with the 14th Amendment of the Constitution, ensuring “one person, one vote.” Every ten years local Contra Costa governmental bodies use the mandated Census to redraw districts’ lines to reflect population growth and shifts, affecting who will be elected to represent you.

Learn from a panel of current and former community leaders about what redistricting is, how the process works, how you can participate and how it affects you.

Date:  Thursday, May 27, 2021

Time: 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
