D.C. elections board to discuss voting precinct realignment

WASHINGTON (AP) - The District of Columbia's board of elections is meeting to discuss the realignment of precinct boundaries for voting in the wake of the census and redistricting.

The Board of Elections and Ethics meets Wednesday morning to look at changing precinct boundaries so that they align with the newly redrawn boundaries of the city's eight wards.

The D.C. Council passed legislation earlier this year moving the boundaries of some the wards, each of which have approximately equal populations, following new census data.

The elections board is looking at changing the boundaries of 13 precincts and moving two precincts into different wards.
