Voting on Election Day
City Council approved a new City Ward map, which will impact voting precincts for upcoming elections. Although there was minimal change to the 48th Ward (which saw the addition of a block of Uptown that includes the Bezazian Library), there was a reduction in the number of polling places, and a reconfiguration of precinct boundaries. Please see below for an updated precinct map. Click here to find your polling location for Election Day.
