In addition to opportunities to testify and offer recommendations at House and Senate committee hearings, members of the public will be able to submit proposed district plans to the legislature when the 2020 Census data becomes available in 2021. Specific procedures for members of the public to have access to the legislature's redistricting software are under consideration and are dependent on the Census Bureau's release of the data needed for redistricting. Plans prepared by members of the public on other free or commercially available software (for example, Maptitude, Public Mapping Project's District Builder, Esri Redistricting, Dave's Redistricting) may be provided to the legislature in a standard block equivalency file format (.txt or .csv) for inclusion in DistrictViewer and RedAppl, where they will be easily accessible for consideration or further modifications by legislators, the committees, and the public. Procedures for electronic submission of plans prepared by the public, such as by email, will be publicized after those procedures have been finalized.
