One of my proudest moments as governor of California was working with advocates like Common Cause and the League of Women Voters to reform the redistricting process.
INDIANAPOLIS | Democrat Tara Nelson decided this week not to take a second run at unseating U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Indianapolis.
The Lake County Redistricting Commission seems to have lost sight of the aim of redistricting — to serve constituents, not incumbents.
Former Indiana Secretary of State's Todd Rokita's Rethinking Redistricting proposal failed to change the process for drawing new federal and state legislative following the 2010 Census, but there's still time to create a clear vision for the 2020 results.

In simple terms, gerrymandering is the act of drawing district boundaries to benefit a particular group.
The mapmakers in the Indiana General Assembly had a mischievous bent when they drew the 4th Congressional District 10 years ago.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The 2010 census report coming out Tuesday will include a boatload of good political news for Republicans and grim data for Democrats hoping to re-elect President Barack Obama and rebound from last month's devastating elections.
