Redistricting Explained


Kansas City, MO – The latest battle raging in Kansas City's council chambers has been over district boundaries. According to the charter, the city is supposed to re-draw the district map after every three general elections, which means about every 12 years, or whenever the population shifts dramatically. KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross and Steve Bell talk about what's at stake.

Steve Bell hosted a longer discussion of the redistricting debate on a recent Walt Bodine Show.

The final redistricting advisory committee meeting open to the public comment will be Wednesday, September 8, 2010 at the Gregg/Klice Community Center.
