A year of redistricting in Illinois
Since the beginning of the year, Illinois lawmakers have undertaken the once-a-decade task of drawing new political boundaries for the legislature, state Supreme Court and congressional districts. The legislative maps are facing a legal challenge and the congressional districts are forcing candidates to consider their options ahead of next year’s filing deadline. On this episode of The CloutCast, reporter Joel Ebert discusses the year in redistricting with CHANGE Illinois executive director Madeleine Doubek and mapmaker Frank Calabrese, who reflect on the new political boundaries and the process that was used to get to them while looking ahead at the future of redistricting in Illinois.
