Wice Presents Media Seminar on Redistricting

In cooperation with the National Conference on State Legislators, Jeff Wice presented a media seminar, entitled “How Redistricting Works: the Nuts and Bolts for Reporters.”  The seminar, held on January 25th, was designed to provide journalists a better understanding of the often complex process of redrawing congressional and state legislative boundaries.  Jeff discussed the different techniques and software utilized by state legislatures’ and redistricting commissions, explained the use of census data in redrawing districts and provided an overview of the basic laws affecting the redistricting process.  

Jeff will also be a featured speaker on several panels at the forthcoming national convention of the National Democratic Law Students Association.
