The Wayne County Board of Elections has changed the location of a number of precincts in the county, effective for the November 5, 2013 General Election. The process to determine the new locations has taken place over a period of 14 months. The driving force behind most of the changes is improved compliance with the American With Disabilities Act (ADA). The Department of Justice requires that polling locations meet a number of standards for accessibility. In an effort to better improve access to all Wayne County voters, we identified a number of voting locations that are improvements over existing locations. We tried as much as possible to select locations that are centrally located for the voters they serve.
Below is a list of new precincts. All voters affected by these changes should have received a postcard in the mail informing them of this change. Thank you for your patience during this transition period.
