Do you want to be a part of a commission to address congressional districts in Maryland?  If so Governor Larry Hogan wants to hear from you.

Governor Hogan executed an emergency order to set up a commission to address districts in Maryland.  

A Federal court ruled that Maryland's voting districts were set up to favor Democrats.  The courts want a new map submitted by March 7th, but the Governor wants people to help with the remapping.

"This non-partisan commission will be composed of 9 members.  Including 3 registered voters who are Democrats, 3 who are Republicans and 3 Maryland voters who are not affiliated with either the democrat or republican party." Governor Hogan said on Monday.

You can apply to be on this special commission here .  Applications must be in by December 10th.
