Voting precincts could change this year in Louisa County. County Auditor Sylvia Belzer says adjustments are in the planning stages, and nothing has been finalized yet. Under the proposal, the number of precincts would change from eight to five.
Figures released after last year’s census show population has decreased in the last ten years, which means the five new precincts will result from combining current precincts, based on population. She also says when the plans have been made official in Louisa County, the Secretary of State’s office will have to approve the changes.
Belzer says new precincts could be announced by October.
