Is it likely that Montana will gain a second Congressional district after the 2020 census? 

What criteria are typically used to ensure the boundaries of each district are fair?  

How well have Montana’s Redistricting Commissions done in the past to create fair districts for Montana’s legislature?

Why are redistricting commissions controversial in other states?

These important questions are the focus of a five-city speaking tour sponsored by the League of Women Voters featuring Dr. Peter Miller, a nationally recognized expert on elections and redistricting.   Peter Miller is a PhD Political Scientist, who graduated from high school in Billings, Montana.  One of Miller’s articles on redistricting commissions was cited by the 2015 U.S. Supreme Court decision written by Justice Ginsberg in Arizona State Legislature v. Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission. He is a frequent commentator on topics related to redistricting reform, voting rights, and elections.
