CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Voting boundaries that will influence Nevada politics for the next decade are a done deal after months of posturing and punts, with political power shifting to populous Las
Vegas at the expense of rural areas.
Democrats, who have a 65,000 voter registration edge statewide, also have an advantage in the maps that redraw Nevada's 21 Senate
and 42 Assembly districts, and carve out fourth a Congressional seat.
Carson City District Judge James Todd Russell entered his final order Thursday, officially adopting effective dates for the maps drawn by a panel of court-appointed special masters.
Two plans approved by Democrats during the legislative session were vetoed by Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval. Sandoval refused to
call a special session to tackle the issue, tossing the political hot potato to Russell.
