The Common Council invites applications for the Citizens’ Redistricting Advisory Commission

BLOOMINGTON – The City of Bloomington Office of the Common Council is accepting additional applications to fill vacant positions on the Citizens’ Redistricting Advisory Commission. The purpose of the Commission is to advise the Council on redrawing Councilmember district boundaries pursuant to redistricting requirements under state law following the 2020 Census.

The Commission will be an independent, politically-balanced body, consisting of two Republicans, two Democrats, and one Independent, and will include two full-time Indiana University-Bloomington students. Each member must be a registered voter living within city limits and must have voted as a resident of the City of Bloomington in at least one of the last two general elections immediately preceding the application. Members will be asked to serve through the end of 2022. The City will provide training, tools, and support to Commissioners as they do their work, so no prior experience is necessary.

The Commission shall hold public hearings at least every other month but may choose to meet more often. For more information, please visit the following website:
