Southeast Alaskans get their say on election district boundaries at a meeting today in Juneau.
The Alaska Redistricting Board is taking comments from noon to 4 p.m. at the Capitol.
Those outside Juneau can call in via teleconference at 1-855-463-5009. The board says testimony will be limited to three minutes per speaker.
The board has proposed seven plans of its own. Eleven others are from a variety of organizations. Some of those are variations of earlier plans.
