Redistricting is the drawing of congressional and state legislative districts to adjust for uneven growth in different parts of the state. This occurs once every ten years immediately following the census. The Florida Legislature is responsible for the drawing of the maps. We are anticipating final maps from the legislature in March.
Part of our role in redistricting is to redraw precinct lines within all districts throughout the county as needed. All changes will be submitted to the Board of County Commissioners for approval.
Due to the ongoing process of redistricting, effective March 1st, we will no longer be mailing Voter Information Cards. All registered voters in Hernando County will receive a new Voter Information Card once the redistricting process is complete and prior to the August 23rd Primary. Make sure to review your card carefully as polling locations may change!
