On Wednesday, the Minnesota Citizens Redistricting Commission gathered to hold final discussions on a proposed Minnesota redistricting map before the panel of 15 commissioners officially submits that map to the state’s judiciary on October 21. The Commission also ran the political numbers for the first time.
Draw the Line is a citizens’ group, with no more influence than the other groups or individuals that testify at the court hearings. Nevertheless, Minnesota Citizens Redistricting Commission claims it offers a neutral approach to sorting out the redistricting process. Draw the Line’s partners are Common Cause Minnesota, the League of Women Voters Minnesota, Minnesota Council of Nonprofits and TakeAction Minnesota.

An earlier version of this story reported that the commission already released the redistricting map, which is incorrect. We regret the error.
