Indiana Citizens Redistricting Commission
Party:Nonpartisan
Website:Draw the Line Indiana
The Indiana Citizens Redistricting Commission (ICRC) is an 11 member group advocating for redistricting reform in Indiana. It was formed in December 2010 by Common Cause/Indiana, Downs Center for Politics at IPFW, the League of Women Voters of Indiana and AARP Indiana[1]. It is part of the larger Draw the Line Midwest campaign.

Mission

The Indiana Citizens Redistricting Commission was created to "offer a public interest alternative" to the partisan maps produced by the legislature. To that end, the commission will draw maps based on competition and fairness and submit them for consideration. They aim to inform and engage the public in the process.

Composition

The ICRC is chaired by former legislators Dave Crooks, a Democrat, and Bill Ruppel, a Republican.

It is said to be representative of Indiana voters, and as such includes Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Independents and the Tea Party.[2]

Public involvement

On March 24, 2011, the ICRC called on the public to generate their own plans for redistricting.[3]
