OKFB Encourages Rural Oklahomans to Participate in Legislative Redistricting Town Halls

Tue, 01 Dec 2020 15:42:58 CST

OKFB Encourages Rural Oklahomans to Participate in Legislative Redistricting Town Halls Oklahoma Farm Bureau encourages rural Oklahomans to attend one of the Oklahoma Legislature's redistricting town hall meetings to be held across the state in the coming weeks.

Every 10 years, the state Legislature is constitutionally required to redraw legislative and congressional district boundaries using the latest U.S. Census data.

After working diligently over the past year to promote census participation in rural areas across the state, OKFB now invites rural Oklahomans to share their perspectives as lawmakers begin redrawing of legislative and congressional district lines.

"The redistricting process only happens every 10 years, which means it's important that rural perspectives be represented," said Rodd Moesel, OKFB president. "These redistricting town halls hosted by the state Legislature are an excellent opportunity for rural Oklahomans to make their voices and concerns heard as lawmakers begin to redraw legislative and congressional district lines."

At each meeting, presenters will give an overview of the legislative redistricting process and cover redistricting principles. The public will have the chance to comment on the redistricting of legislative districts and congressional districts.

Both chambers of the state Legislature will host their own series of public meetings, but will collaborate to share input from constituents across the state.

Sen. Lonnie Paxton of Tuttle serves as chair of the Oklahoma Senate Select Committee on Redistricting, while Rep. Ryan Martinez of Edmond will lead the House Redistricting Committee.

Redistricting town halls will be livestreamed as facility abilities allow, archived and posted online. Each town hall will follow the pandemic protection protocols of the facility hosting the meeting. Find the locations and dates for the town hall meetings on the OKFB website.
