Over the weekend, with little fanfare, the Shelby County Election Commission re-activated their precinct locator with updated information for the November election.
You can find it here.
As of this writing, the “Where to Vote” button, that was featured on the front page is still gone, so maybe they’re in testing mode.
Either way, this feature has returned…and now with accurate information.
Its interesting that the County Commission districts still reflect the current scenario. Kind of challenges the assertion that Commission redistricting was the “cause” of the hold-up. With two years left before Commission elections, updating that information would have been confusing to a lot of people.
Maybe they’ve got another version of the database ready to go for the 2014 cycle. We’ll see.
In other news, I’m hearing that people who will be voting in new locations are receiving letters from the Commission notifying them of the change. This is also encouraging.
Don’t forget to bring your ID when you vote. This applies to Early Voting and Election Day voting.
Vote early…vote often! (That means every election FYI)
