More than 27,000 voters in Bonneville County will have a new polling location for this upcoming election.
Voters will receive letters in the mail, if they haven’t already on their new precinct assignment.
This is something that’s been in the works for quite sometime to accommodate the growth in Bonneville County by equalizing the precincts and to minimize taxing breaks for the number of taxing districts.
If you received multiple letters with different locations, the Bonneville County Elections office is asking you to call them at 529-1350 with any questions.
“The complexity of elections have changed so much that we had so many different ballot faces that we had to have at a given election, so by changing the boundaries that way we won’t have near as many ballot styles that they have to deal with at elections and hopefully the lines won’t be as long for people in the larger precincts,” said Penny Manning, Elections Chief for Bonneville County.
The elections office also says that if you’re unhappy with your new polling location, you can always request an absentee ballot and vote by mail.
