Tulsa Technology Center – Owasso
10800 North 140 East Avenue in Owasso.
Sen. J.J. Dossett, D-Owasso, and Rep. Mark Vancuren, R-Owasso, are inviting citizens to attend an upcoming town hall meeting on redistricting. The town hall will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 28, at the Tulsa Technology Center’s Sycamore Room, 10800 North 140 East Avenue in Owasso.
Every ten years, following completion of the U.S. Census, the constitution requires lawmakers to redraw boundaries for legislative and congressional districts to reflect changes in population. Because population growth and decline doesn’t occur at the same rate throughout the state, those boundary lines must be redrawn to keep those numbers as even as possible.
“It’s a process that directly impacts your representation. Our goal is to make this process open and transparent, so the Senate and House have been hosting a series of town hall meetings throughout the state to inform citizens about redistricting, answer questions and even receive input from citizens,” Dossett said. “I hope as many people as possible will make plans to join us and become active participants in the redistricting process.”
Oklahomans can also submit redistricting comments via email to the Senate at firstname.lastname@example.org. The town hall can also be viewed via livestream on the Senate’s official website at www.oksenate.gov.
