Daily Freeman liveblogs the Ulster County redistricting hearing

Just starting now: A 7pm public meeting to discuss the Ulster County Commission on Reapportionment's plan to redraw the county's legislative districts. The Legislature will be voting on whether to accept the new plan immediately after the hearing.

It's also a neat opportunity to watch the Freeman try out some new web ninja tricks. Freeman editor Ivan Lajara, who's been behind a lot of the Freeman's recent experiments in web publishing, is covering the hearing via CoverItLive. The service allows a reporter to draw in Twitter feeds, publish photos and video, and provide live commentary on the fly. Check out the Freeman's live video and coverage of the meeting here (you can replay it, if you missed the live feed).
