And it’s maps … apparently

We don't get to see the final maps right away - tomorrow morning is evidently when they will be posted - but the Washington Redistricting Commission did seem to get its work done, about two hours from the final deadline.

A number of people (commissioners included) argued that the timeline could be shorted. A legislator writing in comments, Ross Hunter, said "I would have loved to implement [Tom] Huff's idea right now and cut their budget. There is no reason it takes this long."

There was one advantage to the drawn-out process. Commissioner Dean Foster pointed it out: With more hearings, debates, delay, it all got more exposure to the public and generated more public reaction.

And the final results carried the signatures of all commission members.
