This includes both general comments and the ability to upload your own legislative map. Here are some suggestions on comments you can make.
You can provide your feedback on the LRC website.
It's best to give specific feedback. For example: what did the old legislative maps do well? What did they get wrong? Check out this video from Fair Districts PA for a great example of how it's done.
Another form of feedback, if you've drawn a map yourself, is what the experience taught you that will be useful for the LRC to know. For example:
Draw the Lines is happy to help you craft any written comments. And if you've done a legislative map, the LRC is inviting you to upload it to their portal.
Draw the Lines mappers have unique qualifications to support the LRC's work. Make sure they hear from you!
