Indiana has been counting its citizens since we became a state in 1816. Dig into our collections and meet local experts to explore how you are counted during our four-part series.
In the first part of the series, we’ll explore gerrymandering and how citizens’ locations and voting history are counted by political parties in a way to redistrict in their favor. Learn the basics of gerrymandering through Indiana’s history, ask questions of a scholar, and then try your hand at drawing your own redistricting lines.
$5; free for members and students.
Includes light refreshments.
