The Effingham County Board Legislative Committee Wednesday voted to recommend the full board approve a different redistricting map than was recommended by a different committee on Tuesday.

County Clerk Kerry Hirtzel, who oversees the redistricting process, said the map recommended for approval Wednesday better distributes population among the nine county board districts than the one recommended for approval on Tuesday. Hirtzel said the change will not have much impact on where people vote. 

The County Board will vote on a final redistricting plan at their monthly meeting next Monday.
