Here's a first look at legislative district plan L-87, which was adopted on a unanimous, 6-0 vote by Idaho's bipartisan citizen redistricting commission today. Though it's a little hard to tell from the full-state map, District 1 takes in all of Boundary and much of Bonner County; District 2 has three Bonner precincts and the rest from Kootenai County; districts 3 and 4 are all within Kootenai County; District 5 consists of Benewah and Latah counties; and District 6 consists of Lewis and Nez Perce counties. District 7, the large district geographically, takes in part of Kootenai County, plus all of Clearwater, Idaho and Shoshone counties.

There are closer-up maps here of the various parts of the state, on the commission's website (scroll down).
