Hendry County Voters Will Receive New Voter Information Cards Once Redistricting is Complete
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 United States Census.
The Florida Legislature is responsible for drawing the maps. We anticipate receiving the final maps from the legislature soon.
Part of our role in redistricting is to redraw precinct lines within electoral districts throughout the county. All changes are submitted to the Board of County Commissioners for approval.
Due to the ongoing process of redistricting, effective immediately, we will no longer be mailing Voter Information Cards. All registered voters in Hendry 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!
What this means is, in a Primary Election you will only be allowed to vote for the party which you are registered. Voter registration books are officially closed 29 days before all elections. If you want to change your party to vote in the primary, the change MUST be made 29 days before that election.
If you choose the REPUBLICAN PARTY, you are allowed to vote only for REPUBLICAN candidates, NON-PARTISAN candidates, and REFERENDUMS in Primary Elections.
If you choose the DEMOCRAT PARTY, you are allowed to vote only for DEMOCRAT candidates, NON-PARTISAN candidates, and REFERENDUMS in Primary Elections.
If a MINOR Party is registered with the State of Florida and has candidates in a primary race, voters registered in that MINOR party will be allowed to vote in that party’s primary, non-partisan candidates, and referendums in primary elections. You cannot vote for Republican or Democrat candidates in any Primary Election.
NO PARTY AFFILIATION
If you choose NO PARTY AFFILIATION you’re allowed to vote only for NON PARTISAN candidates and referendums in Primary Elections.
You cannot vote for Republican or Democrat candidates in any Primary Election.
In a General Election party does not matter. Everyone votes the same ballot style.
