The NH House Special Committee on Redistricting and NH Senate Redistricting Committee will conduct "public listening sessions" in each NH county during September & October 2021. As someone who is concerned about how a fair, nonpartisan and transparent redistricting process affects your representation in Concord and in Washington, we need you to attend and speak up for a fair process.
We demand a fair, nonpartisan & transparent redistricting process
As we understand it, these meetings will be in-person and will NOT have an interactive Zoom option for remote testimony. They will likely NOT have a YouTube live option as has been the case with Legislative Office Building meetings in Concord, further limiting transparency.
Given the COVID situation, we understand that not all volunteers are comfortable being inside for the meeting, so we have other outdoor and stay-at-home options. That said, we are trying to mobilize as many in-the-room attendees as possible. Through incompetence or intention, there has been an effort to limit the public input into the redistricting process which must be overcome to assure fair maps.
Please follow the links to RSVP for one or more meeting. After RSVPing, you'll be taken to a page where you'll be able to choose HOW you want to participate: Sit inside (from any county); Sit inside and testify in person (from this county); Help explain the maps at inside/outside table; Stay outside and hold signs; Stay outside with clipboard; Stay at home and help make turnout phone calls; Stay at home and submit written testimony.
