By legislative enactment, the 1969 Nebraska Legislature created the Nebraska Constitutional Revision Commission, effective May 26, 1969. As an outgrowth of this legislation, the commission comprehensively reviewed the Constitution of Nebraska and presented its suggestions and recommendations for revision of the constitution in a report dated September 24, 1970. Substantial changes were made in Article V, the judicial article. The fourth recommended revision deals with the redistricting of judicial districts through the provisions of Article V, section 5. This Comment examines the redistricting provisions of Article V, section 5 in light of the constitutional requirements for equality in voting, and the possible constitutional implications of the suggested revisions.
