I’m working to make local voices heard in the redistricting process.
IL Redistricting process: Upcoming hearings in our area
The House Redistricting Committee will hold three hearings in our area to hear from people in our community about demographic changes in our area and communities with similar needs.
April 5 – Elgin (virtual) – 5:30pm
April 8 – West DuPage (virtual) – 3:00pm
April 9 – Aurora (In-person) – 4:00pm
There are 2 steps if you wish to submit written testimony or to speak before the committee (oral testimony):
- Create a witness slip by clicking the info link above for the appropriate hearing, then clicking ‘Create Witness Slips’- fill out the form (use ‘Self’ in the fields for firm/organization unless you are representing a specific organization), and choose ‘oral’ or ‘written’ depending on the testimony you would like to share.
- Email RedistrictingCommittee@hds.ilga.gov – include date & region of hearing – and either your written testimony attached as a pdf file (YourName.pdf), or a brief description of the oral testimony you wish to share and your contact information.
Other Ways to Participate
Visit The Illinois House Dems Redistricting Site for information on all the hearings around the state, to draw your own redistricting map, for information on the maps from the 2011 redistricting, and, most importantly, for information on citizen participation in this process.
