The first step is gathering public input from Hoosiers about criteria that should be used to draw electoral district maps.

The public is invited to join the conversation with regard to Congressional District 9 from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday. Registration is required by visiting A registration screen will prompt entry of the registrant’s name and email address, and a Zoom link will be emailed to that address.
