so corrosive
Jennifer Hill

Ohio went for Trump!!
AF

Zapotec, in Oaxaca, Mexico
Roy Pardee
28:33
it compares us to Myanmar, which of course just suffered a military coup
Jennifer Calvert
30:42
What are the grounds for arresting the protesters in DC?
Jennifer Hill
32:51
Ohio's redistricting is only for 4 years.
Roy Pardee
43:18
shocker!
Roy Pardee

Clark County is down by Vancouver...
Cindy Black, Fix Democracy First
51:34
Yes, Vancouver!
Denise Smith
51:36
What went wrong?
Roy Pardee
51:44
what's up w/the maps the committee passed on after they failed to meet their deadline--are those on the level & they really just missed the timing, or something else?
David Gordon
51:45
will the supreme court create a fair map?
Deb Bauder
51:57
What does the agreed on but late map look like?
Kevin Jones
51:58
Will the Supreme Court have a public participation process associated with their map drawing?
Dwight Rousu
51:58
Why did our much praised bipartisan system fail this time?
Joanna Cullen
51:59
Is there a possibility of having a new say regarding maps?
Nancy Gill
51:59
what’s the liklihood of the supreme court adopting the LWvoters maps?
Carol Sullivan
55:24
I’ve read the book, and it is easy to read, very much a human interest story about a mom who got involved in an era that hadn’t seen much involvement from women. Alison can be justifiably proud of her grandmother!
Carol Sullivan
55:52
I loved the fact that they used Shell Gas Station maps to do the redistricting!

How accurate is the 2020 census?
Dwight Rousu
01:02:23
Do we have profiles of the political views of our Supreme Court justices?
Nancy Gill
01:07:45
I always told my students “fair” was the first week in August!😂
David Gordon
01:08:16
I do not think fair is necessarily in the eye of the beholder. You can conceive of a map designed to exclude a particular group, and nearly everyone would agree such a map is not fair. "Is it fair?" is NOT a loaded question.

Bryan Callan
01:12:10
Are the final maps from the Commission at risk of invalidation due to the questions about violations of the Open Public Meetings Act?
Bryan Callan
01:12:35
Is the Court bound by the requirements of the OPMA?
David Gordon
01:14:12
How could the commission made up of legislators possibly come to agreement? It is clear which maps benefit Democrats and which maps benefit Republicans...how could one possibly agree to a map of the other?
Carol Sullivan
01:16:15
MAPS!
Carol Sullivan
01:17:15
So we can see them in Dave’s Redistricting ?
Cindy Black, Fix Democracy First
01:17:53
WA Redistricting Commission’s Final Approved Maps - https://washington-redistricting-commission.webflow.io/final-maps
Roy Pardee
01:18:23
they look reasonably compact
Carol Sullivan
01:20:26
Are all current CD representatives still in their district?
Carol Sullivan
01:20:45
Do they still live in their district?
Dorene Carrel
01:21:41
Is Burien still in the 7th district?
Joanna Cullen
01:23:25
your map doesn't seem to show the changes on the north of the 9th
Nancy Gill
01:23:56
what about vashon island
Joanna Cullen
01:24:00
north end of the 9th
Joanna Cullen
01:24:54
oops I was looking at the north end of the 9th in Seattle and see that I can see it
Dwight Rousu
01:25:11
I think Del Bene is in Medina
David Gordon
01:25:44
did all 4 commissioners agree to this map?
Joanna Cullen
01:26:30
So west Seattle honored desires. Capitol Hill and Central District communities not honored
Kevin Jones
01:27:31
Vashon was a point of disagreement regarding state legislative districts. I don't recall seeing any maps which moved Vashon out of the 7th Congressional district.
Carol Sullivan
01:28:20
Which State Legislators were drawn out of their districts?
Nancy Gill
01:31:10
looks like I5 is still the divider in SWW. Longview and Kelso east of I5 are split, are with Vancouver.
Joanna Cullen
01:32:53
They can move too.
Dorene Carrel
01:33:00
Is Burien still in the 34th Dist.?
Darrell Johnson
01:33:03
Any comments on the 26th ld?
David Gordon
01:33:16
whose map is this we are looking at? One of the 4 commissioners?
Cindy Black, Fix Democracy First
01:34:13
This is the maps all the commissioners agreed to.
David Gordon
01:34:31
I thought the commissioners couldn't agree on a map?
Libby Carr
01:34:51
Is Bothell still in the 1st?
Dorene Carrel
01:35:54
Is it possible to see the streets in Burien between the 34th and 33rd districts?
Cindy Black, Fix Democracy First

Joanna Cullen
01:38:03
I is the beauty of her maps (Dave's), which are much better with details than the ones the commission presented.
Julie Anne Kempf
01:38:05
Losing Lake Forest Park and Kenmore from the 46th is a disaster - breaks up a significant Hispanic community along SR-522 and was opposed by both city councils. Disservice to the voters.
Dwight Rousu
01:38:42
Did the current proposed changes cure any gerimandering from previous redistricting? Like CD 1 and 2?
Judy Zeider
01:39:20
Would you put the link to the League of Women Voters webpage which has the WA Redistricting Commission's maps in the Dave's Redistricting platform? Dave's is much more user friendly than the platform the Commission used.

If climate change desertifies eastern Washington, would emergency redistricting be an option?
