Our friends in the Florida Senate created this helpful website to RSVP for this summer’s public hearings on redistricting:
RSVPing in advance of meetings is optional, but it does help us ensure that we adequately prepare for the number of Floridians who wish to present their ideas for redistricting.
Everyone is welcome at the public hearings to speak directly to the Senators and Representatives about redistricting. Our sole purpose is listening to learn how you want the standards governing redistricting to be implemented and how you think districts in your area can work best for all voters and constituents.
Meetings will convene promptly at the scheduled start time and will adjourn upon the completion of business or the scheduled end time, whichever occurs first. We will carefully budget time to hear as much public testimony as possible, and citizens are welcome to supplement the record with written materials. Please let us know if you plan to attend and if you wish to speak at the meeting, so we can arrange enough seating and allot adequate time.
Persons in need of special accommodations (such as sign language, translation services or other accommodations) to participate in the meetings should contact the Florida House of Representatives’ Redistricting Committee at (850) 488-3928 or email@example.com at least (5) business days before the meeting, in order that accommodations may be satisfied.
Persons wishing to make a brief presentation (such as 5 or fewer PowerPoint slides, or presentations of redistricting plans created by Floridians) will be accommodated to the best of our ability and the technology available at the host location of the meeting. It is recommended that such persons also contact the Florida House of Representatives’ Redistricting Committee at (850) 488-3928 or firstname.lastname@example.org at least (5) business days before the meeting, in order that accommodations may be satisfied.
Submitting Remarks Via Social Media:
Floridians unable to attend the meetings may still submit remarks via social media, by:
- Submitting remarks via email to email@example.com,
- Submitting comments via Facebook at www.facebook.com/MyDistrictBuilder, or
- Submitting comments via Twitter at twitter.com/FLRedistricting.
Social media comments will be entered into the public record of the meetings. Time permitting, comments may also be read aloud at the meetings.
Meeting videos, podcasts, transcripts and other records will be available through www.floridaredistricting.org.
