    The League of Women Voters of Orange, Durham and Chatham counties is hosting a presentation by Walter Salinger in Meeting Room A.

    Mr. Salinger contends that “Ongoing changes in North Carolina’s demographics are so extensive that they could overwhelm even the most thoroughly gerrymandered redistricting process.” In the face of these changes, Mr. Salinger provides an alternative view of the process and advocates for a nonpartisan redistricting plan.

    Walter Salinger is a retired professor who taught Psychology for 38 years at the University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG). While at UNCG, he served in such leadership positions as Head of the Psychology Department and Chair of the Faculty Senate. Since retiring in 2010, he has become an active member of the League of Women Voters of the Piedmont Triad (LWVPT), focusing on nonpartisan redistricting reform and diminishing the influence of money on politics. He serves on the Boards of Directors of LWVPT and the League of Women Voters of North Carolina.

    The program is free and open to the public. Free parking is available.
