Vote Nevada Supporters,
Yesterday’s Committee to Conduct an Investigation into Matters Relating to Reapportionment and Redistricting in Nevada meeting recording is now available here https://www.leg.state.nv.us/Video/ The meeting includes a thorough explanation of the redistricting process, including all the constitutional mandates and federal laws that cover redistricting and a brief overview of the MyDistricting Nevada software.
If you create an account and use the MyDistricting Software, you can use the Validate feature to check existing maps for compliance with all constitutional mandates and federal laws. Nevadans who log into the software to draw or validate maps will be able to see all redistricting maps and communities of interest map submitted by other Nevadans here https://redistricting.leg.state.nv.us/legdistricting/nevada/comment_links
Please consider creating a community of interest map here to help others draw and validate maps: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/Division/Research/Districts/Reapp/2021/getting-involved The information is about halfway down the page.
The Princeton Gerrymandering Project is scoring state congressional and legislative maps here https://gerrymander.princeton.edu/redistricting-report-card/ So, even if you do not use the MyDistricting Nevada software, you’ll be able to see how the Project’s Report Card scores our maps as soon as we see them.
All the redistricting maps belong to the people, so it is vitally important to participate as much as you can in this process.
Our Inclusive Civics Education: Tribal Government and Sovereignty event was very informative. If you are not aware that tribal governments have a “nation to nation” relationship with the U.S. Government, you will definitely want to watch the event’s presentations: https://drive.google.com/file/d/17A_iwTdmVCvvHEETGg-62XcleDuTeNTI/view?usp=sharing
We are definitely planning more indigenous-themed events in the future. There is a lot to share.
Thank you for being Nevadans with me,
