RSVP for Summer Redistricting Meetings

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.
