Alaska voting districts to be redrawn... again

FAIRBANKS, AK -- Election boundaries will once again change as the Alaska State Supreme Court has ordered the state's redistricting plan be redrawn for 2014.

This year's elections were held using an interim plan allowed by the court after an earlier version was struck down.

In a release today, the court ruled the Redistricting Board did not follow the process it was instructed to follow, which would have emphasized state constitutional requirements that complied with Federal law.

Two Justices, Dana Fabe and Senior Justice Warren Mathews dissented, claiming the board's approach was practical and reasonable.
