Broward County, FL. (July 5, 2012)—Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Dr. Brenda C. Snipes, would like to inform all Broward Voters that they will be receiving a new voter information card in the mail shortly, due to recent redistricting updates.
Every 10 years, Florida re-draws its districts for Congress, state Senate and House districts, and County Commission. This is what is called redistricting. Redistricting ensures that about the same number of people live in each district and, as a result, each person is equally represented in our government.
Once reapportionment and redistricting are complete, a voter may become an elector in new district(s) with new elected official(s).
“We would like to remind all voters to review the information on their new voter information cards and remember that district numbers may have changed due to redistricting.” said Dr. Snipes. “Voters may view their most current precinct information by going to The Broward County Supervisor of Elections’ Precinct Finder Tool at www.browardsoe.org. The precinct finder allows a voter to enter their address and find the correct precinct. Once the voter’s precinct is located, the voter can view the voting districts and polling place.”
In summary, as a result of reapportionment and redistricting, a voter could be assigned to new districts with a new set of elected officials.
