Pinellas County Reduces Number of Voting Precincts

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.

New county precinct lines submitted by Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark in compliance with Florida Statute 101.001 were approved Tuesday by the Pinellas Board of County Commissioners.

This approval brings Pinellas County near the completion of its redistricting process, a news release said.

“It is important going into a presidential election to provide our voters with as much continuity as possible,” Clark said in the news release. “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.” 

Redistricting Results:

  • 80 percent of voters will vote at their current polling places
  • 32 percent (122) of the precincts have no boundary changes
  • Number of polling places reduced from 238 to 234
  • Number of precincts reduced from 376 to 298, largely by combining precincts that already voted at the same polling places

“Now that the precinct lines are approved,” Clark said in the release, “We will update our voter registration database with the new district and precinct information and will mail new voter information cards to all 600,000 Pinellas County voters in June.”

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. 

According to Clark, 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.

Republicans will do anything in their power to keep the Democrats from voting. They will take away neighborhood precincts, make them prove they are alive, whatever it takes. The Republican party will not purge their own. What a fix, Scott's name was purged. That's a laugh since that is supposed to make us think that there is no preference in purging. LOL..Scott, you are lower than whale feces.
