What is Gerrymandering and why does it matter?

November 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Featuring Liz Tentarelli of the New Hampshire League of Women Voters, and NH Rep. Marjorie Smith (D) Stafford. The event will be moderated by Mary Jensen, project manager for the Jonathan Daniels Center.

Ms. Tentarelli will give a presentation on the history of gerrymandering, and an overview of redistricting and gerrymandering in New Hampshire. After the presentation, she will be joined by Rep. Smith who was a sponsor of the 2020 NH House Bill 1665 “Establishing an independent advisory commission on redistricting”. Rep. Smith will answer questions about her interest in gerrymandering, and the process of writing and sponsoring legislation.  In addition to the November elections, the 2020 Census will influence redistricting and representation, once the Census is complete.

The event is free, but registration is required
