At their last meeting, the Johnson County Commissioners received a recommendation from Clerk Vicki Edelman to approve a consolidation, or boundary change of voting districts and precincts in the county.
The districts are in southern Johnson County in the Sussex District, specifically in the Linch area and will affect 16 voters.
Edelman explains further.
Election District 9, Precincts 12 and 13 (9-12, 9-13) will now be District 9, Precinct 13 with the change.
The affected voters will still vote at Harold Jarrard Park in Kaycee.
Resolution No. 456 was passed by the commission.
On a related note, the commission voted to change their meeting times in August and November to not interfere with this year's primary and general elections.
The meetings scheduled for Tuesday, August 21 and Tuesday, November 6 have been changed to Thursday, August 23 and Thursday, November 8.
