Lecture: How Will Gerrymandering Affect You?
The Litchfield Historical Society and the League of Women Voters of Litchfield County invite you to a discussion about gerrymandering-the manipulation of district boundaries. Historian John Dasher will be presenting this talk at the Historical Society on Sunday, January 14 at 3:30 p.m. Dasher will lead a discussion about how gerrymandering came about, its evolving use over the years, and its development as a political tool. This is a timely talk because Connecticut’s ten-year census period is wrapping up and there might be a redrawing of voting district lines.
This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Space is limited and registration is required. To register, call (860) 567-4501 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about this or other programs, please visit www.litchfieldhistoricalsociety.org.
