Update to 2013 Proposed Changes
The Electoral Board amended its recommendation to the Board of County Supervisors to narrow the scope of the changes to be implemented this year. At the Aug. 6th BOCS meeting, the Board approved four changes, and will consider additional changes at a later date. The four changes approved are to the Piney Branch precinct in Brentsville Magisterial District, the Coles and Marshall precincts in Coles Magisterial District, and the Battlefield and Haymarket precincts in Gainesville Magisterial District.
2013 Proposed Changes in Voter Precincts
The Prince William County Electoral Board submitted a proposal to the Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) to address the issues that caused problems in the Nov. 2012 Presidential Election. The Bi-Partisan Election Process Task Force presented its report on July 16. The Electoral Board is responding to one of the Task Force’s recommendations by assessing precinct boundaries and voting locations. The BOCS has scheduled a public hearing for Aug. 6 to hear comments from the public before considering the approval of these changes.
The proposed changes are included in this web page. Unlike the redistricting effort in 2011, there are no changes in representatives in this effort; only changes of precinct assignment, name, or voting location. Every PWC voter will still have the same U.S. Congressmen, Virginia Senator, House of Delegates member, and Supervisor.

2011 Redistricting Information
Every 10 years, the County must reexamine its election districts and precincts in order to ensure that they are evenly populated, based on the U.S. Census results. Prince William County has experienced tremendous growth in the last 10 years, which resulted in many changes to election districts and precincts.
All Prince William County voters were mailed new Voter Cards in August of 2011 with information about redistricting, and any changes to their individual district and precinct assignments.
In March 2012 the Department of Justice approved the Virginia Congressional redistricting plan and voter cards were mailed to those voters whose Congressional District changed. A list of the Congressional District changes by precinct is available. A list of all PWC 2012 precincts and polling places with election districts is available.
Every registered voter in Prince William County should have received at least one Voter Card since Sept. 2011, but if you didn't receive a card please call our office so we can mail one to you.
