• Board of Elections assigns some voters to new voting districts
By Linda Green

When elections are held next year, voters on 51 city streets and county roads will possibly vote in a new school district, and in 2015 they will vote in a new City of Thomson council district.
The McDuffie County Board of Elections has completed a process of district reassignments, which is the act of transferring streets to new districts, beginning with the 2014 election cycles.
According to Elections Director Kelvin Williams, the district reassignments are for the City of Thomson and the McDuffie County Board of Education.
In 2012, lines for representation on the city council, county commission and board of education were redrawn as a result of the 2010 census. The lines were approved by those entities and the Department of Justice gave partial approval to some of the redistricting, as their approval was required for voting district changes prior to 2013, Williams said.
“The movements are a result of mapping changes which were drawn in early 2012 and are not new district lines for 2013. The district lines were adopted in 2012.” he said.
