The Colorado Supreme Court has rejected the new maps for State House and Senate districts approved in September. As Fox 31 reports:
Several state lawmakers saw their seats become a lot more competitive under the new map, drawn by Entravision CEO Mario Carerra, the unaffiliated chairman of — and swing vote on — the 11-member commission.
Now, after a 4-2 vote by the state’s highest court, the Commission will have to reconvene and present a new map by Dec. 6.
The primary objection from the Supreme Court was that the new maps did not do enough to keep counties intact, particularly in Jefferson and Arapahoe counties.
