Signatures are needed to get it on the ballot for November's general election.
Local lawmakers are looking for support from Maryland residents to sign a petition to take the new congressional district map to a statewide vote.
"The governor introduced and the general assembly passed a very gerrymandered congressional map and we're very upset with it because it takes areas like Rockville and puts them with areas like Deep Creek Lake and Walkersville and Middletown would be Chevy Chase and Silver Spring and cuts up Frederick County in half," Delegate Michael Hough said.
On Wednesday, over 200 signatures were collected at the Shell Gas Station on Route 40; however, at least 57,736 approved signatures are needed to get it on the ballot for November's general election.
"We think it's a very bad map. Bad for western Maryland, it's bad for the whole state so we are working to petition the governor's gerrymandered map to referendums so we can put it on the ballot this November so people have the chance to vote up or down on it," Hough said.
To sign the petition, go to MDPetitions.com, fill out the form then send it in.
