LSO adds redistricting page

This year Wyoming legislators will redraw the boundaries of areas from which representatives are elected to the legislature, and the process should be an open one that encourages input from the public. So kudos to the Legislative Service Office for launching a new redistricting website. District boundaries are supposed to be drawn to fairly represent all constituents, but the process also presents an opportunity to favor one voting block over another — a time-honored battle between Republicans and Democrats.

Check out the new website, and let your legislative representatives know you want a level playing field for all of Wyoming’s interests.

Here’s a list of upcoming public meetings which will help determine Wyoming’s voting districts:

– Rock Springs May 25 morning
– Pinedale May 25 evening
– Casper June 14 morning
– Wright June 14 evening
– Laramie June 28 morning
– Cheyenne June 28 evening
– Powell July 12 morning
– Worland July 12 evening
– Lander July 13 morning
– Rawlins July 13 evening
– Torrington August 15 evening

For more information, go to the redistricting webpage.
