Pima County supervisor districts are expected to change slightly as a result of redistricting.
The Arizona Daily Star reports tweaking here and there will likely create two Republican-leaning districts.
Democrat Party districts will likely be drawn on the south and west sides where minorities will make up a majority of voters.
A moderately Democratic sprawling District 3, reaching to the western county line, is closing in on 47 percent minority voters.
Pima County Election’s Director Brad Nelson advised a panel of redistricting commissioners that they likely need to maintain the majority-minority districts already in existence when figuring out the supervisor districts.
The Arizona Daily Star reports supervisors hope to see the new district maps by September in order to get federal approval in time for next year’s elections.
