City of Mt. Pleasant voting districts change

July 20, 2012 – As the August 7 primary approaches, it is important for Mt. Pleasant City residents to be aware that six of the seven voting districts within the City have changed due to results from the 2010 Census.

The voting district changes were made in order to coincide with revised county commission districts. After each decade’s census, legislative boundary lines are reviewed for federal, state and local districts. Municipal precincts are determined by population and county commission seats, and are limited to 2,999 voters.

A map of the newly-outlined districts is available here. Each registered voter should have received a new voter identification card indicating their federal, state and local districts, precinct number and polling location.

The city encourages residents to visit the Michigan Voter Information Center at www.michigan.gov/vote to get more information on the primary and to view a sample ballot for the election.

This is a great collaborative project with Isabella County and we are planning to continue updating map information and explore the opportunity for mobile map access to the city parks,” said Chris Bundy, director of parks and public spaces for the City of Mt. Pleasant.

City residents with questions can contact the City Clerk’s office at 989-779-5361 or visit the City Clerk’s office at City Hall, 320 W. Broadway St.
