After last week’s special session on redistricting, Trigg County will continue to be split between the Fourth and Eight Districts, although the exact borders have changed slightly.

Last Wednesday, the Kentucky House of Representatives, by a vote of 83 – 17, voted for the Democratic plan, with a few amendments.

“Our 8th District changes relatively little, since it continues to include major portions of Christian and Trigg counties,” said Eighth District Representative John Tilley (D). “On the other hand, given the population shifts we have seen since the last Census – declines in the far west and east and increases in urban areas – many other districts are altered significantly.”

Fifth District Representative Kenny Imes (R) will also continue to represent part of Trigg County, although his territory will be slightly larger.
