Internet Helps Individuals Get Involved with Redistricting

Saturday, October 23, 2010

As MALDEF focuses on Latino representation in the Southwest, the NAACP LDF continues to represent African American voters, mostly in the South, where some states must submit their plans to the Justice Department for review.

Clarke said the fund launched a new website to provide individuals with an overview of how redistricting works and explain why it is important to be involved in the process.
 
“Its important that it is carried out in a way that is open and transparent or allows for easy public participation,” Clarke said.
