Hoosiers are invited to attend one or more of a series of public meetings across the state this week on Aug. 6-7 and next week on Aug. 11 to provide feedback on Indiana’s redistricting process.
Indiana is required to redraw its districts for the U.S. House of Representatives, the Indiana House of Representatives and Indiana Senate following the nationwide census every 10 years.
Before legislators are expected to return to the Statehouse in mid-to-late September to redraw the district boundaries, public meetings will be held in each of Indiana’s nine congressional districts. The meetings are grouped into geographic areas, including north, south and central.
Below is the complete schedule of public meetings:
- North – Friday, Aug. 6 and Saturday, Aug. 7 at the following Ivy Tech campuses:
Lafayette | 10 a.m. to noon Friday, Aug. 6
Valparaiso | 3-5 p.m. CDT Friday, Aug. 6

Census data is delayed due to the pandemic, but is expected to arrive on Aug. 16. An online portal with mapping software will be launched in late August that will allow the public to draw and submit their own maps for consideration.
