Supervisor of Elections' New Precinct Map approved
New county precinct lines submitted by Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark in compliance with Florida Statute 101.001 were approved today by the Pinellas County Commissioners. This approval brings Pinellas County near the completion of its redistricting process.
“It is important going into a presidential election to provide our voters with as much continuity as possible,” Clark said. “After complying with the requirements of new district lines, our number one priority was to minimize the number of polling place changes and to adjust precinct lines so voters are closer to their polling places.”
Efforts to maintain continuity resulted in the following:
Voter information cards will include new voting district and precinct numbers, as well as polling places. The cards will be enclosed in red-white-and-blue mailers from the Supervisor of Elections.
The new precinct map, along with new congressional, state senate and state house district maps are posted online at www.votepinellas.com by selecting Maps/District Maps.
The voter registration database will be updated this weekend, and data will be uploaded to the Web site’s Precinct Finder feature to allow voters to look up their precinct, district and polling place information next week.
