On March 25th and 26th, members of the House and Senate Election Committees held public hearings on redistricting in 8 separate locations throughout the State.  The hearings were designed to allow the public to share what they would like to see changed as the Indiana General Assembly begins the process of drawing new legislative district boundaries for the Indiana House of Representatives, the Indiana Senate and the nine Congressional districts.

Hearings have already been held in the following locations:  Lafayette, Crown Point, Elkhart and Fort Wayne.   In the southern part of the state, hearings were held in Terre Haute, Evansville, Jeffersonville and Columbus. 

Under the Indiana Constitution, the General Assembly elected during the year in which a federal decennial census is taken shall fix by law the number of Senators and Representatives and apportion them among districts according to the number of inhabitants in each district, as revealed by that census.
