Oklahoma Farm Bureau encourages its members to attend congressional redistricting town hall meetings to represent the voices and perspectives of rural Oklahoma.
Five in-person town halls will be hosted in each congressional district, along with two virtual town halls. The meetings provide Oklahomans an opportunity to offer input as House and Senate redistricting committees prepare to draw new congressional district lines.
“Just as we did with legislative redistricting, the legislature is committed to an open and transparent process for congressional redistricting,” Sen. Lonnie Paxton, R-Tuttle, chair of the Oklahoma Senate Select Committee on Redistricting, said. “We encourage those interested in the process to join us in-person or virtually to learn more about congressional redistricting.”
By law, state legislators must redraw Oklahoma’s legislative and congressional district boundaries to reflect changes in population every 10 years immediately following the decennial census.
While the Oklahoma House and Senate completed state legislative redistricting plans this spring, the congressional redistricting process was postponed due to census data delays from the federal government.
The Legislature plans to reconvene in a special session in the fall to complete congressional redistricting and make any necessary adjustments to legislative districts upon the release of final Census data.
Anyone unable to attend the meeting may email comments to the House at email@example.com, Senate at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact their state representative or state senator.
