Some Precincts Changed Due To Redistricting

Do you know what precinct you're in? Last spring, the number of polling places in Pinellas County was reduced from 376 to 298. The changes impact about 20 percent of voters, according to the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Office.

You might want to take a quick look on the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections website to see what precinct you're in, before you head out the door to vote Tuesday.

Back in May, Pinellas County Commissioners approved new precinct boundary lines as part of the redistricting process. The number of polling places in Pinellas County was also reduced from 376 to 298.

The changes impact about 20 percent of voters, according to the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Office. The elections office mailed voter information cards out to let people know about the changes. 

However, we heard from one reader who ran into a snag when it came to figuring out what precinct she's in. Randee Kilgore lives in Palm Harbor. Her voter ID card said she is in one precinct, then she looked up her address using the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections online Precinct Finder and it said she was in a different precinct.

"Please alert voters in Palm Harbor that their precinct location may have changed," Kilgore says. "This could lead to some serious confusion on Tuesday if voters are not aware of precinct changes."

It is easy to find your precinct, just type your address in the Precinct Finder.
