Crow Wing County looks at redistricting


Crow Wing County commissioners may run for election earlier than expected.

It’s all part of the ripple effects of redistricting. Commissioner’s borders may be redrawn, potentially placing more board members on the ballot.

The first redistricting step came with redrawing the congressional and legislative maps. The second step involves the cities. Once cities redraw their precinct lines, the county will be able to make its move.
