KY Supreme Court rules redistricting unconstitutional

It's official, the newly passed redistricting law is unconstitutional.

Kentucky's Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the law passed earlier this year by the general assembly violates the state's constitution by making legislative districts unequal in population.

The ruling states legislative candidates will continue running for office in districts that have been in place for ten years.

Kentucky's constitution mandates all legislative districts be of equal size in population.

Redistricting occurs every ten years.
