Montana Districting Group Working To Change Counting Of Incarcerated Citizens

In: News Headlines

The Montana Districting and Apportionment Commission is moving forward with its plan to change how incarcerated people in the state are counted for the purposes of legislative redistricting. In a meeting earlier this month they voted to send out a request for proposals to vendors who may be able to do the necessary analysis. The body is seeking a contractor to adjust census data for around 3,000 state inmates across seven facilities and set aside $10,000 to get it done. The Montana Department of Corrections is not required to track the last-known addresses of state prisoners and only has residences on file for about a third of the population.
