How much do you know about redistricting? In Georgia, the state legislature alone determines what State House, State Senate and Congressional district you live in, and thus who represents you. This is an obvious conflict of interest:  Elected officials are selecting their own voters. For this reason, it is essential that the General Assembly avoid secrecy and do the work of redistricting in full view of the public. This begins by publicly releasing a schedule for the redistricting process through the special session. When will the maps be released for public comment?

You care about your community and you know it’s important who represents you. Legislators in the General Assembly owe the public a fair process and result. contact __________(a committee member(s) and/or their legislator) and ask a publicly released timeline for the redistricting process.
