New voting wards in the works


City officials are awaiting state approval of its new voting wards. Newburyport had to redraw its six voting wards as a result of population shifts revealed in the 2010 US Census. The secretary of state’s office requires municipalities to review their wards every 10 years, and realign precinct borders as necessary to ensure that their populations remain roughly equal. Once the new ward boundaries are approved, a precinct map will be made available, according to the city clerk’s office. - Brenda J. Buote
