Our Georgia legislators are holding public hearings to get input prior to the drawing of house, senate and congressional districts. But how will our input be used? There is little public oversight over the process and it is largely done in secret. There is no good reason for this secrecy. We have an opportunity now to attend these public hearings and ask our legislators for transparency in the redistricting process. Legislators should require full, timely disclosure of all data algorithms, maps, and mapping shape files in time for the public to review and comment, well in advance of legislative votes. I urge you to attend these hearing. The schedule is posted here https://www.legis.ga.gov/house and https://www.legis.ga.gov/senate .
