The state redistricting commission’s road show of its draft congressional and legislative maps continues Wednesday evening with a public hearing in Payson.

The Payson hearing is the second of nearly 30 being held in communities around the state.

After the hearings, the commission will give final approval to the maps, possibly after making changes to the draft versions.

The maps will then be submitted to the U.S. Department of Justice for review for compliance with the Voting Rights Act.
