LETTER: Gerrymandering might hurt Monroe County

Does your vote count as much as your neighbor’s? The practice of drawing voting districts to benefit one political party over another, otherwise known as gerrymandering, allows some votes to count more than others. 

As a nonpartisan organization, the League of Women Voters of Bloomington-Monroe County supports the fair redistricting standards set out in state Senate Bill 105.  However, this bill has not yet been allowed a hearing; if it doesn’t come up for a vote by April 11, we’ll lose our opportunity to set new redistricting standards for the next 10 years.

Please urge Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma to use his influence to see that SB105 gets its hearing. Call speaker Bosma at 317-232-9677 or send an email to


Thank you.
