TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — The Pima County Board of Supervisors unanimously adopted new maps for the five supervisors' districts at the Tuesday meeting.
The changes will impact 21 voting precincts, which represent only 7.6% of the county's 278 precincts. Districts 1 and 3 saw the most dramatic change.
State law requires the Board of Supervisors to undergo redistricting every 10 years. The law is intended to balance the population of each district within 10% based on new census data.
New Pima Community College District maps, whose voting districts mirror Pima County's, were also adopted.
