CONCORD—Today, Senator Shannon Chandley introduced SB 8, the Independent Redistricting Act. If passed, SB 8 would establish an independent redistricting commission, made up of members of the public, which would draw boundaries for state and federal elections in New Hampshire.
Senator Chandley released the following statement after the hearing:
“The will of voters is easily distorted when partisan lines are drawn. An independent commission takes this important responsibility out of the hands of those who have the most vested interest in the outcome of this process.”
