Do you know what gerrymandering is? Do you know what our congressional district is shaped like and why? Do you know how it affects your vote?

Three Manchester groups are working together to host a non-partisan look at gerrymandering on Wednesday, June 14th, from 6:30 – 8 pm in media center of the Manchester High School, located at 20500 Dutch Drive, featuring a speaker from Voters Not Politicians.

Voters Not Politicians is a ballot question committee working on a citizen led ballot initiative. With the help of other grassroots organizations, Voters Not Politicians’ vision is to establish an Independent Citizen Redistricting Commission through a state constitutional amendment. Read more about Voters Not Politicians at www.votersnotpoliticians.com.
