It sounds easy enough. One person, one vote. But the issue gets more complicated when you put that into practice and start redrawing legislative boundaries.   As people move around the State, some legislative districts pick up more, some lose residents. In areas like Bend that have had a net gain over the last decade, the House Districts need to be re-drawn. The goal is to have joint communities of interest or neighborhoods in the same district, but where do you draw the line? “There was a variety of discussions around that. People have different perspectives. Our task here is to see what different people in the state have to say about that.” Representative Tobias Reed is one member of the Redistricting Committee. Chris Telfer Co-Chairs the Committee and says one thing she wants to avoid is the situation in John Day where the Legislative boundary goes right through the middle of town. People on different side of the street have different Representatives and that's confusing.
