Map-a-Thon - Citizens Drawing their NH Voting Districts

Open Democracy, League of Women Voters-NH, Kent Street Coalition, and Granite State Progress are hosting our second "Map-a-Thon" on Tuesday, June 22 from 6-7:30 p.m. to learn more about the software and the process, and begin having input on fair maps.

We're assembling a team of citizens called Live Free, Map Fair who want to create fair maps to show the NH public what fair maps ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE!  Called the Live Free, Map Fair project, we need both technical and policy volunteers to hash out our fair maps, then get them into the hands of policy members and the press. 

After the Map-a-Thon, and seeing first-hand how the process is done, you can: 

  • Volunteer as a technical member of the Live Free, Map Fair Team using your knowledge of spreadsheets, databases, geography, GIS software and other tech tools to help draw our maps, or
  • Volunteer as a policy member of the Live Free, Map Fair Team helping to identify communities of interest, conduct a Community of Interest Survey, and negotiate some of the compromises and challenges we'll face due to geography, communities of interest, and other factors.

Our maps will be distributed to legislators, town officials, the press, and to the Special Committee on Redistricting itself to draw a comparison with the unfortunately less-than-fair maps we expect from the Special Committee on Redistricting.

Be a part of the process that will change New Hampshire's voting maps for the better!  Sign up for the Map-a-Thon below!
