MINOT, N.D. — Every 10 years we take a census of our population and, based on that count, we reapportion the proportionally representative branches of our government.
That means redrawing legislative district lines.
North Dakota has a process for this that works well. It has no problems.
Unless you’re listening to the left-wing cranks at North Dakota Voters First. They see a problem, and despite their claims to the contrary, it’s that Democrats aren’t winning enough elections in North Dakota.
They want to change the rules which currently govern North Dakota’s elections and redistricting process. They tried last year with a constitutional measure that was ultimately kept off the ballot by the state Supreme Court.
