Every Hillsborough County voter is assigned to a precinct. Do you know the difference between polling places, precincts and districts? Find out in this quick, informative clip – and then continue on to the information below.
Every 10 years, after the U.S. Census, the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners, the Hillsborough County School Board and the Florida Legislature redraw their district boundaries to reflect changes in population.
The City of Tampa does its redistricting every four years.
Visit these links to see how each legislative group approaches the task of redistricting and changes to their district maps.
After all the different district maps are approved, we adjust precinct boundaries to align with the new district maps. Then we bring our voter registration database up to date, so that each voter’s legal residence address reflects the new districts and precincts.
