The workshop explores the need for openness, citizen engagement, and transparency in the redistricting process. It is obvious that GIS plays a role in redistricting, but historically the role GIS plays falls short. This workshop will focus on a case study where civic leaders plan to extend the redistricting data and software tools to the public and discuss the civic health benefits they received. The workshop will close with a demonstration of how to take the new lines for Federal, State legislative districts, and your local districts and move them into a process to re-precinct your voters. Attending this session automatically enters you for a giveaway by the presenting sponsor.
Bringing Clarity to the Redistricting Process is a part of 2021 Virtual NACo Legislative Conference.
