Haakon County Commission districts realigned

Some Haakon County residents will be heading to the polls in new locations as the Haakon County Commission outlined new districts last Tuesday, December 27.
Every 10 years, following the U. S. Census, states, counties and cities have to adjust their voting districts and precincts if the population has shifted. Each area must reflect as equal of a representation as possible, below a 10 percent deviation from the ideal for total population and for total voting age population. The ideal is each district being the same number of residents.
