BACKGROUND/RELATED STRATEGIC GOAL:

Attached to this Agenda Item Summary is the request from Supervisor of Elections Vicki Davis to modify precincts as listed:

* Moving voters from precinct 15-Bethel Lutheran Church, due to structural renovations so those voters will now vote at precinct 22-The Grace Place (1550 SE Salerno Road, Stuart).

From the Florida Statutes:
101.001 Precincts and polling places; boundaries. -
(1) The board of county commissioners in each county, upon recommendation and approval of the supervisor, shall alter or create precincts for voting in the county. Each precinct shall be numbered and, as nearly as practicable, composed of contiguous and compact areas. The supervisor shall designate a polling place at a suitable location within each precinct. The precinct shall not be changed thereafter except with the consent of the supervisor and a majority of the members of the board of county commissioners. The board of county commissioners and the supervisor may have precinct boundaries conform to municipal boundaries in accordance with the provisions of s. 101.002, but, in any event, the registration books shall be maintained in such a manner that there may be determined therefrom the total number of electors in each municipality.
