I understand that Commissioners Barnett and Kottwitz are pushing Legislative maps for redistricting. I believe we should reject gerrymandered maps. Please take a stand for transparency and stop this. Republicans Hunter Barnett and Aislinn Kottwitz are working with non-disclosing and unregistered GOP operatives to shove through last minute maps to favor Republicans for the next ten years. REJECT GERRYMANDERED MAPS!!! We want to make Colorado an outstanding place to live and raise our children. Thank You, Zena Verros

Your last staff map shows very little concern for like minded communities as far as AG, water, or natural resources. Club 20's and the soil conservation map shows like minded people with the same concerns and values with out dividing counties.

We want redistricting to transparent but from what I've read if Dems don't redistrict to benefit the party we'll screw ourselves over and end up losing next year. Sorry but the repubs have had it their way for to long. 100s of repubs are holding seats they didn't REALLY win! The ONLY way we'll be able to save our Democracy is if we fight fire with fire! The repubs aren't even a party anymore and they definitely DON'T CARE about our Democracy. They're doing their level best to suppress the vote so C'MON DEMS draw those lines so it actually benefits us so we can stop them from destroying not just our Democracy but our COUNTRY!

Greetings, I have lived in Cherry Creek Meadows for over 30 years, 15 of which I was Precinct Captain, a position I did not hold since the last census. I declined because the last redistricting cut our community, which is ONE INGRESS/EGRESS, into two non contiguous precincts. The partitions forced volunteers to cross over the Highline and walk a very long block to reach the rest of the precinct. This arrangement discouraged workers to consider doing the whole, now divided, precinct, thus volunteers of BOTH PARTIES were affected. The distribution of party members was virtually the same as the previous workable partitions. I can see why someone who has not driven the area would assume that going right down Yosemite would be logical but it isn’t. The new one is even worse. PLEASE REDRAW this one little area. I have been waiting for ten years for this moment and was told “precincts won’t be redrawn UNTIL the major maps are drawn." It doesn’t seem that way. Consider that most precinct workers are “of a certain age” and hobbling up the hill and over the creek is not easy or inspiring. I will come armed with maps and canes if necessary to any meeting this can be discussed. Thank you. Diane Hansen 8871 E. Amherst Dr – Unit A Denver, CO 80231

I want to keep gerrymandering out of Colorado. Please endeaver to make the final lines truly fair and keep the process unbiased. I am proud to live in a purple state, it makes things interesting and multifaceted - please work to keep things that way.

PLEASE take a stand for transparency & help protect democracy by rejecting the gerrymandered maps being pushed by Commissioners Hunter Barnett & Aislinn Kottwitz ! These two individuals are a disgrace to our democratic process & they are threatening the future of this country ! Please do the right thing; do NOT let these cheaters win !

These maps should reflect the fair nonpartisan maps! Reject maps being pushed by Commissioners Barnett and Kottwitz and support maps drawn by nonpartisan staff.

I really think this is simple. Please do not allow any further shifting of district boundaries in accord with political party or current whim. Numbers should guide us, not political impiulse. If not we face a future of shifting boundaries, even, as is currently being suggested by a minority group(s) in Oregon. I am not being naive but rather reading into the logical consequences of change to serve one party or the other. Thank you.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! Republican legislative Redistricting Commissioners Hunter Barnett (R) and Aislinn Kottwitz (R) are working with non-disclosing and unregistered GOP operatives lobbying to shove through a last-minute set of maps to the Supreme Court that would fundamentally alter the make-up of the state senate and house, almost certainly ensuring control for Colorado Republicans over the next decade. This is a mockery of everything Independent Redistricting Commissions are meant to stand for and , sadly, oh so typical of the devious methods the Republicans continue to pursue to the great detriment of our democracy. Thank you.
