The Brunswick County Board of Elections has made changes to several precinct boundaries and polling places.
Brunswick County has grown exponentially in the last decade, resulting in precincts that are unbalanced and polling places that cannot accommodate the number of voters assigned to them. A thorough evaluation began in January and has culminated in 18 precinct boundary changes, five polling place changes, and the creation of two new precincts. These changes will be effective for the November 2, 2021 municipal election.
During its board meetings held on March 15, April 19, and May 17, the board discussed the possible changes and heard input from the public. We launched an interactive map whereby residents could enter their address to see specifically how they would be impacted by the proposed changes. There was a public comment portal open from March 21 through April 15. We also held three regional open houses allowing residents an opportunity to drop in and discuss the proposal with staff.
“We are pleased with the realignment of precinct boundaries and relocation of polling places,” said Sara LaVere, Director of the Brunswick County Board of Elections. “By making these changes, voters will have better access to convenient and secure voting.”
