The League of Women Voters of Nebraska will present Meant to Represent, an educational presentation on Redistricting in Nebraska, at noon on Thursday, Sept. 16 at the North Platte Public Library. 

The library would appreciate those who are planning to attend to call and reserve a seat at 308-535-8036, ext. 3320 to help plan seating in the room.

The presentation will provide an overview of what redistricting is, how it works specifically in Nebraska, and how to get involved to support transparent and fair redistricting. 

Since the process of redrawing lines of voting districts happens only once every 10 years using new census data, it is important to learn more about a democratic process that is critically important to fair voter representation and a broad spectrum of community needs.

The League of Women Voters of Nebraska is a nonpartisan, grassroots civic organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Membership in the League is open to people 16 years and older of all gender identities. With 100 years of experience, the League is one of the oldest and most trusted civic nonprofit organizations in the United States.
