Speak to the Commissions

Virtual Public Hearings on the First Staff Maps

Sign Up to Speak 

Public hearings on congressional redistricting have concluded, and all of the legislative redistricting hearing slots are full. Thank you for your participation!  You can still submit written comments online.


The Independent Legislative Redistricting Commission will hold three virtual public hearings on the first staff maps. These hearings will be the final opportunities for members of the public to speak to the redistricting commissions.  The hearings are virtual, but anyone who needs help testifying by zoom can sign up to come to the Capitol in Denver, where there will be staff support.

Each legislative hearing will be limited to the first 40 registered speakers.  Speakers MUST register in advance using the linked form (NOT through Zoom).  Registration will close when 40 speakers are registered or at the hearing's scheduled start time.  Registration for the staffed location at the Capitol will close 24 hours before the hearing time so staff can plan for setup.

Friday, September 17 - 6:00-9:00 PM
Saturday, September 18 - 10:00 AM-1:00 PM
Saturday, September 18 - 6:00-9:00 PM

Staffed site for all three Legislative Commission hearings will be the Colorado State Capitol in Denver.
