Officials doubt district changes before election
Published: March 12,2010
VICKSBURG — Warren County officials say its unlikely new census data will be used to redraw local supervisory districts in time for the 2011 election.
Any changes in the district lines must be submitted to the U.S. Department of Justice for review and approval.
Warren County board president Richard George tells the Vicksburg Post that receipt of data in this year’s count might coincide with the usual March 1 candidate qualifying deadline for 2011 elections statewide, meaning there will be no time to draw new districts to reflect population changes.
