Weld County Sued Over Commission Redistricting Map

Dallas Heltzell | Published on 10/25/2023

GREELEY, COLORADO (October 24, 2023) – The League of Women Voters of Greeley and Weld County, along with the Latino Coalition of Weld County and two Weld County residents, are suing the Weld County Board of Commissioners and its five members, alleging that the panel improperly drew commissioner district lines.

In the lawsuit, filed Monday in Weld County District Court, the plaintiffs allege that the commissioners acted in violation of state House Bill 21-1047 by not providing proper public notice of hearings on the redistricting process and by improperly drawing a map that divided a community of interest. The map the commissioners drew divided the city of Greeley, which is 40% Latino, into three separate districts. Weld County as a whole is about 30% Latino.
