State Democrats Suing Over New Redistricting Map

Posted: August 14, 2013 at 6:38 am

The Alaska Democratic Party is suing over the new proposed legislative boundaries.

The ADP filed a lawsuit on Tuesday looking to overturn the proclamation map recently adopted by the Alaska Redistricting Board.

The party was joined in the lawsuit by two individuals, and it is the second lawsuit filed to overturn the map. The first was filed by Fairbanks-area residents.

The Alaska Supreme Court has ordered that a new map be drawn for the 2014 elections after allowing an interim plan to be used for 2012 races.

Last week, the Alaska Redistricting Board asked a judge to dismiss the earlier challenge.
