[ARCHIVED] Congressional Redistricting Forces County Precinct Changes


Voters Will Receive Notice in the Mail First Week of April


Hamilton County voters can expect changes to nearly every precinct in the Primary Election on Tuesday, May 3rd. Indiana is required by state and federal law to redraw Indiana's Statehouse and congressional maps following the nationwide census every 10 years. 

“There were some changes to the Senate and House districts, some county council districts, and some school board districts,” says Elections Administrator Beth Sheller. “Some precincts also were combined, split, or given new names.”

By law, each precinct must have at least 600 eligible voters and no more than 2,000. There are a few exceptions to this rule. A precinct may not cross a congressional or state legislative district line. 

New maps showing these changes can be found at under the “Election Office” tab and the “Precinct and District Maps” tab. Printed copies of the map are also available in the Elections Office for three dollars a map.

“Each voter that moved precincts, had a precinct name change, or has a polling site change, will receive a yellow card in the mail around the first week of April,” Sheller adds. “This card will let the voter know what precinct they are in and where their polling site will be.” 

That information can also be found at Voters are welcome to call the Elections Office for more information at (317) 776-8476.
