2021 Redistricting Resources

There are three primary ways you can play a role in the redistricting process now that the draft maps have been submitted.

LEAVE A COMMENT FOR THE COMMISSIONERS:

You can leave a comment for the commissioners by emailing them at comment@redistricting.wa.gov. All emails sent to that address are forwarded directly to both the Commissioners and their staff. I would recommend that anyone who writes in focuses on their own community and how it relates with surrounding communities (social ties, economic ties, etc.), rather than a direct political statement.

COMMENT ON THE MAP:

You can leave comments on the proposed maps themselves. Anyone can do this via going to https://www.redistricting.wa.gov/commissioner-proposed-maps, clicking on which Commissioners map you would like to view, click on the “Add Comment” option on the upper right-hand corner of the map, and leave your comment.

TESTIFY AT A REDISTRICTING COMMISSION MEETING:

The next meeting will be held on Monday, October 18 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. The deadline to register to testify is October 18 at 3:00 p.m.

There is no deadline to leave a comment at this point, but with deliberations under way, the sooner you comment, the better.
