Redistricting, the redrawing of political boundaries that can sometimes make or break a candidate or party, is coming to South Carolina in 2020.  Just where are we in the process?

Republicans, Democrats and Independents are invited by the League of Women Voters to find out all about the redistricting process in South Carolina and where it stands right now.  Clemson University professor Holly Ulbrich will host the discussion and everyone is welcome.

Drawing political boundaries can affect politics to its core as districts and representatives who run for office in each district are expected to represent you – your values and beliefs. While the federal government stipulates that districts must have nearly equal populations and must not discriminate on the basis of race or ethnicity, sometimes, the districts can actually dilute a political voice. 

Meeting info:

WHEN: Thursday, March 8, 7PM
WHERE: Barrett Room of the Spartanburg County Headquarters Library
                 151 S Church St, Spartanburg, SC 29306
