Changing housing districts causes voter unrest

Proposed voting district maps have changed  again.

The Reapportionment Commission made significant changes to downtown, north shore and windward lines for house districts. The redrawn boundaries still result in several head-to-head races among incumbents.

Critics maintain the outcome can still be challenged on U.S. Constitutional grounds, because the state supreme court ordered more than 100,000 nonpermanent residents to be excluded.

"This isn’t fair to these people – it isn’t just, and it isn’t right," said Janet Mason, from the League of Women Voters.

The latest shakeup again delays the Office of Elections from preparing for the August primary, and no state house or senate candidates can file to run yet.
The commission meets again Thursday with the intent of taking a final vote on the maps.
