Reprecincting

In 2015 we adjusted voting precinct lines to better serve our voters, and some voting locations have changed.

Every 10 years, after the U.S. Census is released, federal, state and local district lines are redrawn so that the population is evenly distributed. We then go through a reprecincting process, updating precinct lines to ensure that our Miami-Dade voters have a pleasant voting experience.

Our main goal was to align new precinct lines with the district boundary lines that were created during the 2012 redistricting process, with as little voter movement as possible before the 2014 Primary and General Elections.

By doing that, we were able to get rid of "split" precincts, where voters with different ballots would vote at the same location. It also allowed us to reduce the number of voters at locations that were too crowded at times.
