A Facebook friend asked why I didn’t include this in previous stories. Since I still don’t understand the ramifications of what attorney Jeff Jurgens stated Monday night, this just gives me another reason to say the Bloomington Election Commission needs abolished.
The City is changing Ward maps to equalize population in the 9 Wards. BEC was supposed to change their precinct maps. Jurgens stated BEC is not going to get that done on time and Bloomington can’t wait for them to finish.

They actually wanted all elections conducted by un-elected bureaucrats like BEC. Un-elected means no accountability, BEC continues to proves the LWV was wrong.
