Readers respond: Independent redistricting commissions work

Written by Barbara Klein, Action Chair of League of Women Voters of Rogue Valley.

In criticizing the idea of creating an independent redistricting commission, Oregon House Majority Leader Barbara Smith Warner recently said “The most representative body is a 90-person Legislature, elected and accountable to the people, rather than a hastily convened 15-20 person commission” (“Top Democrats unlikely to allow public hearing on Oregon independent redistricting proposal,” June 10). My personal experience during 2001 and 2011 redistricting efforts in Arizona show that Smith Warner appears to have the wrong idea of how independent redistricting commissions work.
