Journal Gazette

Redistricting state and federal legislative seats will be the topic of the Jan. 4 educational presentation by Allen County AARP Chapter 187.

The free public presentation will be at 2 p.m. at the Community Foundation, 555 E. Wayne St., Fort Wayne.

Lucy Hess and Barbara Duch of the Northeast Indiana League of Women Voters will discuss the history of redistricting, current legislative districts and the practice known as gerrymandering, where district boundaries are altered to favor candidates of a particular political party.

Redistricting will be conducted by the Indiana General Assembly after the 2020 census.
