As California prepares to redraw district lines for future elections, the State is looking for citizens to apply to join the independent redistricting commission. Voters approved the creation of this commission more than 10 years ago, shifting power away from legislators.

The program features these speakers and topics:

Public Policy Institute of California Research Fellow Eric McGhee will describe how the 2010 cycle of Citizens Redistricting affected elections.

Nicholas Heidorn, Director of Redistricting for Common Cause California, will discuss voter suppression in gerrymandered districts and efforts under way to extend citizens redistricting to districts for county supervisors.

Margarita Fernandez, Chief of Public Affairs for the California Auditor's Office, will explain her office's responsibility to conduct outreach to ensure the widest possible applicant pool and facilitate the formation of a 14-member redistricting commission.

Chair of the 2010 Citizens Redistricting Commission and Yolo County resident Stan Forbes will speak to the importance of applying to serve on the Commission.

The forum is co-sponsored by California Forward. Yolo County Supervisor Don Saylor and Davis City Councilmember Lucas Frerichs will facilitate the program. There will be an opportunity for audience members to ask questions.
