Redistrict Arizona is LIVE!

After months of hard work put in by several people, Redistrict Arizona is up and running.  The online mapping tool will empower Arizona citizens to propose the new Congressional and legislative district lines and demographic make-up.

The public contest to determine the best way to incorporate all six criteria required by the Arizona Constitution (as amended by voters in 2000) opened yesterday and runs through June 6.

News outlets, including the Arizona Republic and the Arizona Capitol Times have written about this dynamic way to increase participation in the redistricting process.

Be sure to catch Arizona Competitive Districts Coalition co-chairs Ken Clark and Roberta Voss this evening at 7pm on local PBS current affairs program, Horizon.  They will discuss their vision for citizen involvement in the redistricting process, the online mapping tool and the public contest.  Horizon airs on Channel 8 in Phoenix.  The interview will also be available to watch online sometime after the over-the-air broadcast.
