Redistricting: What you need to know, how to get involved
The Nebraska Legislature will convene a special session from mid to late September to redraw legislative and congressional districts, potentially changing how Nebraskans are represented in the Legislature and Congress.
Learn about the process, what it means for Nebraskans’ representation and how you can be involved. Nonprofits have an important role to play in this process.
