usually one is adequate

Can you post the resources for data referenced ( 2019 American Survey numbers?) prior to the census comes out?
Mary Galligan
47:13
How do we talk about competitiveness without getting partisan?
Karen Crowley
47:21
American Community Survey: https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/data.html
Connie Taylor
48:00
I’m using how many races, regardless of party affiliation, were not contested.
Iris Meltzer, she/her
48:25
Competitiveness = politicians having to answer to their constituents.
Frances Wallace
48:56
can arguing for competitiveness be seen as being partisan when testifying?

50:18
How do we respond to constituents who are just fine with their district? "We have been voting at the local school for years. Don't want to change."
Iris Meltzer, she/her
50:18
I don't believe so. In Ohio, we've been fighting gerrymandering through both democrat and republican map drawing power - 40 + years!
Kirsten Abrahamson
50:21
Did you use the same mapping software to generate these maps as your commission uses?
Iris Meltzer, she/her
01:01:59
personal and personalized

Uses a rhetorical Q to start; pauses; sincerity.

Fantastic use of pauses--listen to Reagan tapes

01:15:39
quiet, serious delivery
Donna Oba
01:15:42
effective pauses
Iris Meltzer, she/her
01:15:53
If he introduced himself, it started after the video started. Passionate.

01:16:06
He spoe to the commission

01:21:32
Great information and great work coming out of Washington!
Jennifer Fitch
01:21:52
Thanks everyone for the help today!
Christopher Cobey
01:21:59
Any suggestions on how to persuade a legislature committee to use an at least an advisory citizens’ redistricting commission? We are in the somewhat difficult position of asking the legislature to share or surrender their power to redistrict. How can we avoid being accusatory?
Nancy Leifer
01:22:08
I was late getting to this because of a conflicting League meeting. Do you have computers and mapping programs available when you try to engage people in playing with maps?
Connie Taylor
01:22:22
I’m not authorized to speak as a LWV lobbyist - can I still mention I’m a member as part of my affiliation similar to if I wanted to mention that I’m a member of an homeowners association?
Betty Bengtson
01:22:39
Excellent presentation. Valuable tips and suggestions. Thank you Alison, Pat and Karen.
Kirsten Abrahamson
01:23:40
Do you find that there are different strategies when approaching a statewide commission vs local municipalities?
Angie Dunlap
01:26:26
What about the rural vs urban redistricting argument? Rural think they already have too little voice and say they are worried about being split up?
Matthew Saltzman
01:26:33
Good software for public engagement: Dave's Redistricting App and Districtr on the web, QGIS on a computer (Windows, Mac, Linux) with redistricting plugins.
Martha Pint
01:27:45
I love it! Professionally and politely staying loud!
sharon schneeberger
01:30:23
social meeting
sharon schneeberger
01:30:51
Rather, social media
Matthew Saltzman
01:32:24
LWVSC is giving a seminar for the state press association to educate reporters.
LWVUS Alicia Gurrieri (she/her)
01:32:52
that's cool, Matthew!
Pat Bennett-Forman
01:32:59
great idea
Kirsten Abrahamson
01:38:54
This was an excellent take-away of nuts and bolts skills. I really appreciate the specificity and step by step presentation. Appropriate for much more than Redistricting
Alison M. LWVWA she/her
01:39:22
@ Kirsten - Yes. use it when ever you talk to people in power
