The Porter County Board of Commissioners postponed a planned hearing Tuesday on a redistricting plan for four county council districts. Commission President John Evans said the proposal needed additional tweaking and rescheduled it for December 17th. In October, county officials got word of research by students at DePauw University in 2011 and 2012 claiming population between districts is not as equal as it should be as per state law. However, the accuracy of data used in the study has been called into question. Other concerns have been raised about the fairness of redistricting so late in this year, with filing opening up in January for the 2014 elections. Officials say redistricting has to take place during an odd-numbered year. The county began looking into redistricting in late 2011, but did not take action.
