Dolores Provencio, Imperial County clerk/recorder/registrar of voters, announced there will be more precincts in Imperial County.
After redistricting, the county Board of Supervisors adopted new boundaries that resulted in some voters being represented by a different supervisor. This meant new voting districts for voters.
The elections official, by law, establishes precincts within all voting jurisdictions and the registrar of voters took the opportunity to establish the new precincts for jurisdictions that vote on similar issues.
Establishing the precincts will help reduce the cost of printing different ballots since fewer ballots will have to be printed for some of the new precincts.
