New district maps
After the national census every ten years, legislative districts are redrawn in an effort to allocate an equal number of people in each district. The Montana House of Representatives with 100 members has districts of almost 10,000 Montanans each; each State Senate district is comprised of two House districts, or 20,000 Montanans, since our State Senate has 50 seats.
With redistricting done and in effect for these upcoming 2014 elections, the district boundaries for Montana legislative districts have changed.
Here are the links to GREAT maps of the new legislative districts.
To view these maps, download/use Google maps.
There are links on the Redistricting Commission web page to download Google Earth in order to view the maps: http://leg.mt.gov/css/Committees/Interim/2011-2012/districting/adopted-plan.asp
