There are many ways for you to participate in the 2021 redistricting process.

You can tell the Commission about your community by writing or calling in, sharing a video, drawing a boundary map of your community, attending and testifying at public meetings, and by collaborating with your neighbors or community organizations as a group.

There is no wrong way to describe your community to the Commission, and we've outlined how you can share your story below. You may submit to the Commission at any time, in any language, in multiple formats, before or after District's outreach meeting.

Describe Your Community

Send us your comments and insights about your community and what makes it whole. You can do this in any language, and submit it by mail, email, phone, webform, or by recording and uploading a video.

Draw Your WA

Tell the Commissioners about the boundaries of your Community of Interest or comment on the existing Legislative and Congressional Districts with our community mapping tool. New mapping opportunities will be available when Complete 2020 Census data is published.

Attend Public Meetings & Share your Testimony

The Commission welcomes and encourages your input on all Commission matters. Attend your district's outreach meetings or a Commission business meeting online and sign up to provide live public testimony.

Collaborate with Your Neighbors

Work with your neighbors to gather and share your desired community boundaries, or join a community group and participate in the public feedback process together.

Attend October Statewide Public Outreach Meetings

The Commission will be holding special statewide meetings in October—one for proposed Legislative Districts on October 5, and one for Congressional Districts on October 9. We invite you to attend and make your voice heard!
