Some voting precinct changes coming to Henderson Co. - 14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro

Some voting precinct changes coming to Henderson Co.

Posted: Updated:

Some Henderson County residents will be receiving notices in the mail about voting precinct changes. 

Precinct changes are conducted every ten years after the census is taken.

There are five districts in Henderson County. In Kentucky, the population in each district has to be similar by at least 10 percent.

The county found out there was a 17 percent deviation, which is way above the legal level. So, they had to get that number down and they did that by splitting the districts.

"We got our deviation down to 5.4 percent, which is very good. Hopefully that will hold for the next census. It's possible that number may still be under the 10 percent the next time this rolls around," said Renesa Abner, Henderson County Clerk.

If you're affected by the changes, you'll receive a postcard in the mail telling you where your new precinct is to vote. The next election is the May primary.
