Vote Nevada Update 10/27/2021

Vote Nevada Supporters,

CCSD released two more redistricting maps that you can see here: https://ccsd.net/trustees/redistricting/

You can evaluate the maps by looking at the Census data that is available when you open each map and then scroll down to the second page under the map.  To meet the legal requirements for redistricting, each district must be compact, its lines must be contiguous (no breaks), the total population in each district must be very close in size, and communities of interest must be taken into consideration.

The next CCSD Trustees’ meeting is tomorrow, October 28th, at 5 pm.  You can attend in person by going to 2832 East Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, NV 89121; or you can live-stream the meeting here: https://ccsd.net/trustees/meeting-agendas/2021

Redistricting is not on this meeting’s agenda, but a discussion of possibly terminating the superintendent’s contract is, as is the first draft of the CCSD anti-racism policy.

Today there was a good NPR report on how gerrymandering causes voter suppression and distorts policy making. You can listen to the recording here: https://www.npr.org/2021/10/27/1049546344/how-gerrymandering-stifles-potential-voters-and-candidates-as-well-as-skews-poli

The Department of Justice also hosted a sobering webinar on strategies for confronting hate this week, the recording is here: https://youtu.be/fhDOZeBKA7A 

Thank you for being Nevadans with me,
