Lowndes County government has one chairman and three commissioners, one for each district.
Lowndes County is also growing at a steady rate, adding about 20,000 residents since 1990.
To fairly represent the growing county, many feel the Board of Commissioners should grow too.
Before a new district can be made, commissioners must approve and then put the idea on the ballot for the voters at large, a process that will take at least a year.
Commissioners have been talking about redistricting for more than more eight years but feel now is the right time to start taking action. They plan to submit a request to the General Assembly this January.
