ELECTIONS OFFICE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDS MAILING OF
VOTER INFORMATION CARDS
Indian River County, FL – The State of Florida and Indian River County use 2020 Census Data to redraw
legislative districts based on shifts in population. In December 2021, the district boundaries for the Indian River
County Board of County Commissioners and School Board were adjusted to make the five districts equal in
population, or nearly equal as possible.
The Florida Legislature is now in the process of redrawing congressional and state legislative districts to reflect
population growth in the state.
While this process is ongoing, Indian River County Supervisor of Elections Leslie Swan has decided to
temporarily suspend the mailing of voter information cards. Starting March 7, 2022, all new voter registration
applications will be processed; however, instead of getting a voter information card, the voter will receive a
letter acknowledging their placement on the voter registration rolls for Indian River County.
Redistricting often causes altered precinct boundary lines and possibly changes in Election Day polling places.
The Elections Office has decided to stop mailing voter information cards until the conclusion of the redistricting
process to avoid confusion about Election Day polling place locations.
The Supervisor of Elections estimates redistricting will be completed by early June 2022 and all voters will
receive a new voter information card shortly thereafter.
Voters are encouraged to verify the political party affiliation listed on their voter card. Florida is a closed
primary election state, therefore, in primary elections you may only vote in partisan races for candidates of the
party in which you are registered.
Florida’s primary election is August 23, 2022.
