Effect of Vole According to the second attor- ney zeneral's opinion, if voters Plan B, board members will continue to be elected a large as they are now. The opinion stated that "re jection of a proposition by th voters maintains the statu unless the status quo vio lates one man, one vote princ" pies. In that case, court actio; would be possible. In a third question, Robinson asked if the school board musi submit the director district raundaries to a vote when peti- ioned by 50 or more voters. The 'attorney general's- reply vas that voters do have_the ight to determine the bounda- ies at an election. Equal Population Robinson's final question was it is "necessary that each di- ector district be equal in popu- aiion and that the entire school istrict be divided into direc.tor istricts and not elected at large fter a vote has been had at a eneral school election requir- ng director districts." The opinion noted the Iowa supreme court in a 1972 case upheld division of an eniife school district into director dis- tricts of "nearly equal popula- tion." It also noted that four optional plans for electing directors are allowed including at large; dlvi- division of the district into director districts with all districts, they might still be back where they started if they elected a guy who didn't agree with their views. "If they get locked into seven director districls and can't get a candidate, they could really have a Robinson said. Reynolds told The Gazette if the petition he signed is not con- sidered valid according to the attorney general's opinion, "Then the only thing left for us to do is to defeat Plan B. It's just as worthless as snow on the ground. There's absolutely no difference between it arid what we have now." He added he had not yet seen the attorney general's opinion.
