Twin Falls County has filed its redistricting challenge with the Idaho Supreme Court today, as promised, and it includes several additional parties. Those joining the county's challenge include not only several cities in Twin Falls County, including Twin Falls, Filer, Hansen and Buhl, but also three other counties: Kootenai, Teton and Owyhee counties. The legal challenge charges that Idaho's new redistricting plan impermissibly splits counties; it divides 11 of Idaho's 44 counties.
