Maps show possible new districts for expanded Thurston County, Port of Olympia boards

Two potential redistricting maps with two additional districts will be reviewed by Thurston County and Port of Olympia commissioners.

On Friday, a redistricting committee — made up of Thurston County Commissioner Carolina Mejia, Port Commissioner Bob Iyall and County Auditor Mary Hall — decided to send two of three draft options forward for review. The committee has been meeting to plan the districts ahead of the November election, when county voters will decide whether to expand each commission from three to five members.
