Cedar Rapids redistricting map a work in progress

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Linn county supervisors decided not to challenge the state's objections to the county's new election map.

Instead, they will come up with a new redistricting plan that meets the state's requirements.

The secretary of state has rejected the map twice, saying Cedar Rapids has to be divided into the fewest number of county districts possible.

The county's proposal split the city into four of the five new districts, but the secretary of state says the city needs to be split in no more than three districts.
