The Hawaii Supreme Court has named a leader to the group charged with redrawing election district lines.
The court on Friday appointed Victoria Marks as the ninth member and chairwoman of the Hawaii Reapportionment Commission.
The court stepped in after the commission was unable to select a leader.
The commission is evenly divided between members appointed by Republican and Democratic legislative leaders, with each side getting four picks.
They were unable to agree on a leader within 30 days of convening in mid-March, leaving the decision to the court.
Marks is one of 18 who submitted applications for the position.
