The League of Women Voters of Northern Arizona Presents “Fair Maps for Fair Elections: Redistricting in Arizona”
Sedona AZ (April 17, 2021) – Arizona is one of only seven states that have created an Independent Redistricting Commission charged with redrawing its congressional and legislative districts using data from the most recent census. On Monday, May 10, 2021, the League of Women Voters of Northern Arizona Voters Education Program and OLLI at Yavapai College–Sedona/Verde Valley will present a program explaining the redistricting process, which occurs in 2021, and how to participate in it. It will be held from 1:00 p.m. until 2:30 p.m. via Zoom.
Presenters will include Betty Bengtson and Kathy Lalley. Ms. Bengston is a member of the Greater Tucson League, the State Board of the League of Women Voters of Arizona (LWVAZ) and the LWVAZ Advocacy Committee. She also coordinates the League’s state-wide People Powered Fair Maps campaign to work for a fair and independent redistricting of Arizona’s legislative and congressional districts. Kathy Lalley recently joined the League of Women Voters of Greater Tucson to pursue an interest in voting rights and voter access following a career in advertising and marketing focused on research and communication strategy.
