CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada's redistricting battle is returning to Carson City.
A panel of court masters will hold a public hearing on the state's once-in-a-decade redistricting process Tuesday at the state legislative building.
Lawyers representing the Democratic and Republican parties are expected to defend their proposed voter district maps. Voters can also speak at the meeting.
A similar meeting was held in Las Vegas Monday.
The three court masters have been asked to decide how the maps should be drawn and then complete the task because the Nevada Legislature didn't finish its job during the recent legislative session in Carson City.
The Democrat-controlled Legislature passed two maps, but each version was vetoed by Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval.
The boundaries are meant to reflect the state's shifting demographics.
