The Randolph County Board of Elections has combined several voting precincts, reducing the number of precincts from 40 to 22. These precinct changes will be in place beginning with the municipal elections on November 5, 2013. The Board will mail an updated voter card to all effected voters with their new precinct name and polling place.
With the growing increase in early voting, the County Board decided to reallocate its resources from Election Day polling places and to provide more opportunities to vote at one-stop early voting sites. Also, several of the county’s polling places were not easily accessible to voters with disabilities and not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as required by law. Combining some precincts together will allow the Board to open additional one-stop voting sites when needed and to move to ADA compliant polling places.
The County Board of Elections passed a resolution in May 2013 to merge precincts, and submitted a proposal to the State Board of Elections, who approved the precinct mergers in early August.
