Speak to the Commissions
Joint Independent Redistricting Commissions
The Colorado Independent Congressional and Legislative Redistricting Commissions are conducting joint public hearings on their preliminary redistricting plans - congressional, state house, and state senate. These hearings will take place in 32 different locations throughout Colorado, and there will be opportunities to testify remotely or in person.
Those wishing to testify are asked to sign up in advance on the web form. Signups will open one week before each hearing. Only hearings that are currently open for signups appear on the web form. To testify remotely you MUST sign up in advance. If you are testifying in person you are also asked to sign up in advance but may sign up upon arrival.
If you have handouts for the commissioners to accompany your testimony, please bring 20 copies and give them to staff to distribute. You can also submit them as attachments on the web form.
Sign Up to Speak
The Colorado Independent Redistricting Commissions and the nonpartisan staff invite all Colorado residents to comment on redistricting. All comments must include an accurate identification of the author, and the subject of the comment should be limited to congressional or legislative redistricting. Comments that include threats of violence, threats of economic reprisal, or that seek to influence the Commission or nonpartisan staff through deceit will be dismissed and reported to law enforcement.
In order to ensure that your comments and/or proposed map are considered by the Commission and nonpartisan legislative staff, the comment or map should be consistent with the criteria described in Article V, Section 44.3 or Section 48.1 of the Colorado Constitution, to which the Commission and nonpartisan staff must comply when drafting and adopting the new congressional district map.
