Advancing Advocacy Webinar: US Census and Redistricting
Thursday, February 25, 2021
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: Webinar

​What will the substantial delays in U.S. Census data and redistricting requirements mean for your municipality and local elections scheduled for 2021? Will elections be delayed? Join us on Thursday, Feb. 25 at 2 p.m. for another session of Advancing Advocacy, the League’s virtual meeting format covering all things advocacy, to answer those questions and more related to the census’ effects on upcoming municipal elections.

We will be joined by Blake Esselstyn of Mapfigure Consulting and Caroline Mackie, an attorney with Poynter Spruill, to provide you with some expert perspective on the election-related issues created by the census data delays. Among the topics to be explored: 

  • ​Which municipalities are most likely to be affected? 
  • What are the timelines for redistricting and election processes, and how will they affect each other? 
  • What statutory remedies do cities already have to address these issues? 
  • What actions could the General Assembly take?

Don’t miss out on Advancing Advocacy as we discuss this important and timely topic. Join in by registering here, and you will receive your confirmation email and instructions on how to link in to this virtual event on Feb. 25. The best part: It is all free of charge.
