WATERTOWN — The Jefferson County Board of Legislators has officially adopted new district lines, remapping the 15 legislative districts to more equally cover the county’s 115,800 residents.

The new map is largely similar to the existing legislative district lines, with shifts made to account for changing population counts. Each district was required to hold about 7,720 people, with a margin of error of 5% in either direction.
