Douglas County could be in for an overhaul this fall - all five commissioners' seats have been put on the 2012 ticket.

Before the federally mandated redistricting was implemented this spring, only two commissioners were expected to file this year - Bev Bales and Jerry Johnson.


Now, Norm Salto, Paul C. Anderson and Dan Olson will need to re-up their candidacy because the populations in their districts, 2, 4 and 5, have increased.
