Eye On Boise

Watch it live…

Today's Idaho redistricting commission meeting is being streamed live on the Internet, as is tonight's public hearing, which begins at 7 p.m. in the Capitol Auditorium; to listen and watch live, click here. After electing its co-chairs this morning, the commission is now hearing an overview and history of redistricting in Idaho from Boise State University political scientist Gary Moncrief.

The state's software for drawing new congressional and legislative district lines is available for anyone to use who'd like to try their hand at drawing new district lines for Idaho; more than 210 people have accessed it so far. To give it a try, go to the Legislature's website,, click on “Redistricting Commission,” and then on “Maptitude.”
