Watch the Maryland Citizens Redistricting Commission testify on congressional districting plan

The Maryland Citizens Redistricting Commission co-chairs will testify on Senate Bill 0002 and House Bill 0002 before members of the General Assembly at a virtual joint redistricting hearing at 12:30 p.m. The Citizens Commission presented their final maps to Governor Hogan on November 5 for submission to the General Assembly. The final proposed delegate maps, senate maps, and congressional maps can be found here. The Princeton Gerrymandering Project published its 'F' rating for the gerrymandered maps drawn up in secret by legislative leaders and gave an 'A' rating to the citizens' maps. Voting will take pace directly afterwards.
