ABERDEEN, Wash. - Washington State's Redistricting Commission held the first of seventeen meetings last night in Aberdeen, with a rather light turnout, Communications Director Cathy Cochran said;
"What we really want is to listen to the public, and find out what people think are the most important characteristics of their community"
The Redistricting Commission is looking to redraw Washington boundaries of voting districts across the state. With %14 growth since the last census, Washington gains another seat in Congress, and needs to form a 10th Congressional District.
Cochran explained if you missed last night's meeting at the Grays Harbor College, you can visit redistricting.wa.gov
"See when the schedules are, catch a meeting webcast, if none of those meetings work out, they can still get on and watch [pasts] webcasts."
Visitors to the site can also provide input on proposed changes and view proposal maps once they're available.
