Statewide Redistricting Info Session Tonight at 7pm

 I haven't been getting emails from the Alaska Redistricting Board lately.  There is something not working.  I don't know if it is just my email or if others are also affected too.  I did talk to the Board's executive director and he sent me a copy of the last one.  It's at the bottom of this post.  Here's the link for tonight:

Meet the Maps:  Friday, October 15: 6:00pm – 7:00pm: ZOOM:

There was a previous statewide meeting like this and the videotape of that meeting is here. It gives an overview of the maps and some of the issues that the mappers ran up against.    This is presented by Peter Torkelson, the board's executive director who knows as much as anyone about this decade's process.  

Here's the last email message sent to subscribers from the Board:

"A couple of quick updates for today:

  • Public Testimony received though Saturday, October 9 has been posted on: Alaska Redistricting Board - Minutes & Audio (  I have not been able to spend a lot of time on emails so if you sent something to the “testimony” email asking a specific question and I haven’t gotten back to you, I will be getting to it soon. You can always send an email to me at this address if you have urgent questions.
  • District, Regional, and Statewide map collections – all six maps in one file for each area – will now be posted on the Online Public Notice system for each community public hearing (the links are included in the information below). The statewide and regional collections are already posted on our map gallery, but I’ll also be adding those to the public notice so they’re all in one place.  I have prioritized this week’s meetings (which should be done today) and am working on getting the rest posted – all of them should be posted by the end of the week. I will also be going back and posting for the previous meetings – you can find these in the Online Public Notice system by searching for “Alaska Redistricting Board Public Hearing“ in archived notices.

    NOTE: The Anchorage district file is 96 maps – if you’re having trouble finding the appropriate maps for your area, it is probably easiest to use the Anchorage regionals to create a list of districts. Still having trouble? Feel free to email me your address or area of interest and I’ll pull the district files for you.
