Our partners, Common Cause and McGeorge School of Law have put together an online resource for local governments interested in establishing local commissions: www.localredistricting.org. The site includes guidance on creating commissions, a database of every local redistricting ordinance passed in the state, research, and other resources. As part of the project, Common Cause has also committed to helping local organizations or jurisdictions interested in creating a commission with education, research, and drafting.

In 2008, 6 million Americans didn’t vote because they missed a registration deadline or didn’t know how to register. In 2017, we want to make sure no one is left out. On September 26, 2017, volunteers, celebrities, and organizations from all over the country will “hit the streets” for National Voter Registration Day.
