Redistricting commission extends deadline for public comment

June 21, 2011 |  4:26 pm

The citizens commission charged with drawing new political boundaries for seats in California's House of Representatives, state Legislature and Board of Equalization has extended until June 28 the time it will accept written testimony on its first round of proposed maps.

People have until June 28 to submit written comments to the Citizens Redistricting Commission via email to votersfirstact@crc.ca.gov; via U.S. mail to 901 P Street, Suite 154A, Sacramento, CA 95814; or via fax to (916) 651-5711.

The first draft maps were released June 10 and a series of public meetings throughout the state to gather response to them began June 16.

Earlier this week, the commission pushed its date to release the next round of proposed maps from July 7 to July 12 to allow more time to gather and consider public comments about the first draft maps.
