Civic Conversations: 2020 Election Review

December 2, 2020 Civic ConversationsElectionsNewsWFHB Local News Features 13 Views

 


"Today’s episode focuses on a review of the 2020 election. You will hear host Jim Allison’s interview with Julia Vaughn, Policy Director for Common Cause Indiana.  Groups like the League of Women Voters and Common Cause are calling for reform on what they call partisan redistricting. These groups are fighting for an independent commission to redraw legislative maps." "The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, grassroots, citizen-led organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all citizens in the decisions that impact their lives."  "Stay tuned next month for an episode on the Supreme Court – Jim Allison will interview Shelia Kennedy, professor of law for the School of Public Environmental Affairs at IUPUI."





WLFI (Lafayette) posts information about redistricting and the tasks ahead for the legislature.
