Call to Action for Redistricting

November 14, 2021


Last Chance for Fair and Competitive Maps Before 2031

Let the Independent Redistricting Commission know you want fair and competitive maps as the voters intended when they amended the Arizona Constitution to create the Commission.  NOW is the time to speak out against the Draft Maps the Commission adopted on October 28. This time period is the last opportunity to have your say before the Commission adopts final maps for the next 10 years.

Submit Written Comments to the IRC

The IRC’s Congressional and Legislative District Draft Maps for Northern Arizona create districts that are so uncompetitive it will be hard to find candidates and hard to motivate voters. 

You can submit written comments about the Draft Maps also.  Appearing to speak is the most effective tool we have, but combine it with many written submissions!
 Legislative Map Written Comments: https://tinyurl.com/AIRCLegMap

Congressional Map Written Comments: https://tinyurl.com/AIRCCongressionalMap
General Comments: https://irc.az.gov/contact-us

YOUR COMMENTS AND TESTIMONY SHOULD BE SUBMITTED ON YOUR OWN BEHALF AS A CITIZEN. We can provide you information about the issues and process but your testimony and written comments are your own and not those of the Democratic Party. Be sure they reflect your own beliefs.
