Redistricting board will meet Monday on SE plan
The Alaska Redistricting Board will meet Monday in Anchorage to work on new House and Senate districts in Southeast Alaska.
The Alaska Supreme Court, just hours after hearing arguments in the case Thursday, ordered the board to rework House Districts 31-34 and Senate Districts P and Q.
It said the reformulated plan should not be altered based on the federal voting rights act. The high court found no justification under the act for deviating from state constitutional requirements in southeast Alaska.
The reformulated plan is due to the court for further consideration by noon Tuesday.
The redistricting board also has tentatively set Tuesday and Wednesday meetings in Anchorage.
