OKLAHOMA CITY — On September 23rd we formally submitted our Congressional district map to the state legislature for consideration. You can view the map here. Some highlights about it:
Many, many hours and hundreds of conversations with Oklahomans throughout the state went into creating this map. We are extremely proud of the outcome and believe it is the most fair and representative map possible for Oklahoma’s Congressional districts. For a more in-depth discussion about the map, watch our recent Facebook video.
You still have time to submit a map, too! The deadline for submission is October 10th. Instructions for how to submit a map can be found here and instructions for how to use Dave’s Redistricting App are here.
Speaking of other maps, the legislature STILL has not released any maps for public viewing and comments. They’ve had the Census data for more than six weeks and dozens of regular folks like us have found time to draw maps, but the politicians have not. As our director said recently in The Oklahoman: “Incumbent protection is still gerrymandering.”
