COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Supporters of legislative redistricting reform are scheduled to speak at a forum at the University of Maryland.

U.S. Rep. John Delaney and state Delegate Aisha Braveboy are scheduled to be the keynote speakers at the forum on Monday on redistricting reform.

The forum is being sponsored by Common Cause Maryland, a government watchdog group. It’s also being sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Maryland, the National Council of Jewish Women Annapolis Section and the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy.

The forum is scheduled to examine problems with gerrymandering, which allows the state party in power to draw congressional and legislative districts to its advantage in elections.
