CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Kanawha County officials will hold a vote to try to fix a district irregularity that places about 130 people in two delegate districts.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/295YbgK ) reports that the county commission will vote on the issue during its next meeting on July 7.

The commission will discuss if all of Precinct 240 is located in Delegate District 35, as state code suggests, or if some of the area is located in Delegate District 36, as Census data shows.

Officials discussed the issue during a public hearing Tuesday, but there was no consensus.

Some argued that the county should follow the Census blocks to create Precincts 240A and 240B for the people who should be in District 36. Others argued that people who were placed in District 35 should remain in that district.
