Indiana redistricting plan criticized as aiding Republicans

Redistricting proposal

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Republicans will keep greater control of Indiana’s Legislature than merited by the number of votes they receive, according to a political analyst who called the state’s proposed new election districts among most skewed in the country.

The analysis came as a legislative committee on Thursday held a second day of public hearings on the Republican-drawn maps, with several people criticizing the fact that the new election district maps were released less than 48 hours earlier.

The redistricting plan review conducted for the voting-rights group Women4Change found Republicans would likely win 69 of the 100 Indiana House seats while typically receiving 56% of the vote.
