Redistricting Panel Meets Again After Error

Print More

For a state panel adjusting Vermont’s state Senate districts, it’s back to the drawing board.

The seven-member Legislative Appointment Board voted last week to recommend a plan to lawmakers that would reconfigure northwestern Vermont.

But they realized later that their plan to rework the Chittenden, Grand Isle and Franklin districts contained an error, yielding 31 senators, instead of 30.

The board is working under a constitutional requirement that legislative districts be checked once every 10 years to match census data.

It meets at noon today at the Secretary of State’s office in Montpelier.
