Governor Mills Signs Legislation Establishing New Redistricting Maps


Governor Janet Mills Signing Legislation Today Establishing Maine’s New District Maps.

Governor Janet Mills, the first women governor of Maine, announced today that she has signed legislation establishing Maine’s new district maps.  Earlier today the Maine State Legislature voted to approve the new maps during a special session, making Maine the second state in the nation, after Oregon, to approve new Congressional and Legislative district maps.

Ahead of the 2020 census data being released to states, the Maine Supreme Judicial Court issued a Court order outlining a compressed timeline, giving Maine’s Apportionment Committee 45 days after the census data was released to produce maps and then a window of 10 days for the Legislature to approve the maps.
