Democrats want Arizona to reject mapping firm's application to redraw districts

Democrats are calling on Arizona's independent redistricting board to reject applications to draw maps from a group whose top official has served as an expert witness for Republican legislators in gerrymandering cases.

The Arizona Independent Redistricting Committee (IRC) is due to vote Tuesday on which companies it will hire to perform the demographic analysis and draw redistricting maps based on the 2020 Census.

All On The Line, a campaign affiliated with the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, formally called on IRC on Thursday to reject an application to be the mapping consultants presented by Timmons Group and National Demographics Corporation (NDC).

"Arizonans cannot trust NDC to be in a position of drafting maps that could potentially undermine representation," said Kendra Alvarez, Arizona All On The Line state director, in a statement.
