Submit Public Comments on Congressional Maps

Oct 16 @ 5:00 pm

Now is the time for you to exercise your civic duty on deciding the U.S. congressional districts in Montana.

After reviewing the information and resources here, submit your public comments about the nine proposed maps for the new Congressional districts.

You can comment directly on each proposed map for the Commission to read. Watch this tutorial to learn how to add a comment to the interactive maps.

Comments on the proposed maps can be as simple as

  • “This proposed map divides the city of Bozeman, which goes against your agreed-to goal of keeping cities in tact.”
  • “This proposed map favors one political party.”
  • “This proposed map does not equally divide the population of Montana like other maps.”
  • “This proposed map divides federal reservations which does not protect minority voting rights and divides communities of interest.”

Submit your comments directly on the interactive maps or through written comments by Saturday, October 16 at 5:00 pm for the Commission to read before the next meeting.

You can also share your public comments directly with the Commission on Tuesday, October 19 by joining the meeting remotely on Zoom. Click here to register by Monday, October 18 at 5:00 pm.
