New voter cards mailed out in Alachua County

By and on July 11th, 2012

The Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Office has completed the process of transferring all voters to their new precincts and districts.  These changes were required after the State completed drawing the new lines for house, senate, and congressional Districts.   Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Pam Carpenter says information from the recent consensus causes redistricting and voter changes to occur.

However, Carpenter adds redistricting doesn’t affect all areas of the state the same way.
