Gerrymandering Documentary & Discussion

Thursday, September 5 - 5:30 PM


The non-partisan 100-year-old Canton Area League of Women Voters invites you to watch a 58-minute documentary, "Line in the Street," about citizen efforts to assure fair, competitive voting districts, followed by a discussion about what's next in Ohio's efforts to eliminate gerrymandering.

Ohio voters overwhelmingly approved a new process to draw Congressional and Ohio Legislative districts, but the process won't be implemented until after the 2020 U.S. Census. A U.S. Supreme Court decision shot down an effort by the LWV of Ohio, the A Philip Randolph Institute, and the Ohio ACLU to draw new districts for 2020 Congressional races. After watching the documentary, join a discussion of what's next in Ohio and how citizens can assure their rights are upheld when new district lines are drawn.
