Editor’s note:
   An ordinance adopted to redistrict election wards must provide for districts substantially equal in population, and the most recent federal census must be used to ascertain population, regardless of other available information. 198 Neb. 19, 251 N.W.2d 662 (1977). When an area is annexed to a city, that area’s population must be taken into account in a subsequent redistricting of election wards, in addition to the population of the city as determined by the federal census. Where block by block information is unavailable in the census, other evidence may be used. Pelzer v. City of Bellevue, 200 Neb. 541, 264 N.W.2d 653 (1978).
