Redrawn lines, new challengers, and incumbents create fluid local races.
We've covered the 2010 Census before and mentioned then how the new population data would change the landscape of local politics. One of the most visible ways this new data has changed the political situation is redistricting, changing political district lines. The result, locally, are new council districts, current council members running against each other for new districts, and an increased political role for the southern part of the county.
