Citizens Redistricting Commission drawing today!

Today at 12:30 pm, the City Auditor will hold a public meeting and randomly draw 8 names from the pool of 60 applicants to serve on the Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission.  The 8 selected Commissioners will appoint 6 additional Commissioners from the pool of remaining applicants to ensure that the Commission reflects the diversity of the City of Austin.  At least 1 of the Commissioners shall be a student that is duly enrolled in a community college or university in Austin.  These 14 Commissioners will constitute Austin’s first Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission empowered to establish the boundaries of the 10 new geographic council districts for the City of Austin.

More updates to come!
