63 Public Submissions of Florida Redistricting Maps!

Ten years ago, the Florida Legislature received 4 public submissions of redistricting maps.  Back then, the Florida Legislature offered the public access redistricting software via the FREDS 2000 software, a CD-based application.

Ten years later public participation has increased dramatically with access to redistricting software via the Internet, including the Florida House’s MyDistrictBuilder application.  Today, we added the 63rd public submission of a partial or complete map to the web.

The 63 public submissions of redistricting maps can be viewed by visiting the “Public Submissions” button at www.floridaredistricting.org, or directly at http://mydistrictbuilderplanexplorer.wordpress.com/.
