The moveâ€”required by Idaho Statuteâ€”ensures the population in each of the three districts is no more or less than 10 percent of the other two districts based on the 2010 Census.
The change only affects 2,701 people living in Precinct 4, which is the area of Riverton Road west of Blackfoot. Precinct 4 is now part of District 3, which includes nearly all of western Bingham County.
