Alaska redistricting plan passes muster

Posted: November 18, 2013 - 2:19pm

JUNEAU (AP) A state court judge has ruled that Alaska's newly redrawn political boundaries meet constitutional standards.

Superior Court Judge Michael McConahy issued the ruling Monday, granting the Alaska Redistricting Board's requests for summary judgment.

The Alaska Supreme Court had ordered the board to redraw the state's political boundaries after allowing an interim map to be used for last year's elections.

Issues of compactness and socio-economic integration were raised in challenges to the way in which several of the districts were drawn in the latest iteration of the map. But McConahy found the challenged districts passed constitutional muster.
