TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Two members of the Kansas State Board of Education are in the same district under new lines imposed by three federal judges.

The judges ruled Thursday in a lawsuit over the Legislature's failure to redraw political boundaries to account for population changes over the past decade. The judges set boundaries for congressional, legislative and Board of Education districts.

The new map of the 10-member Board of Education moves Overland Park Democrat Sue Storm from the 2nd District into the 3rd District with Olathe Republican John Bacon. The new district covers southern Johnson and northern Miami counties.

Board members serve four-year terms. The 3rd District seat won't be on the ballot until 2014. The 2nd District seat will be on the ballot in November, but Storm has said she would not run again.
