Get Prepared: Redistricting is Coming to Southeast Colorado Oct 13th

Please join the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association, Action22, Alamosa County Chamber of Commerce, Colorado Association of Wheat Growers, Colorado Corn Growers Association, Colorado Dairy Farmers, Colorado Farm Bureau, Colorado Livestock Association, Colorado Mining Association, Colorado Pork Producers Council, Colorado Rural Electric Association, Rocky Mountain Farmers Union & Trinidad and Las Animas County Chamber of Commerce for a Zoom discussion with Colorado Neighborhood Coalition about how to get involved in the redistricting process. Because population growth in much of southwest Colorado has lagged the Denver Metro area, our legislative districts will have to grow and be fully reconfigured. The maps adopted in 2021 will be in effect for the next 10 years. Make your rural voice heard!

The passage of Amendments Y & Z in 2018 fundamentally changed how redistricting is conducted. The time to apply for the Congressional and Legislative Redistricting Commissions is now. The application window closes November 10, 2020. If southwest Coloradans are not involved in this process, the Denver Metro area will dominate the map-drawing process.

Tuesday, October 13th at 6 p.m. MDT
