JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —
A final vote by the Jacksonville city council cuts the number of polling places by nearly 20 percent.
"So we're going from 256 precincts to 198," says Duval county elections supervisor Jerry Holland.
Holland says having fewer polling places will save $266,000 and help them balance their budget.
The state is already limiting the number of early voting days to eight, but Holland says his office is also expanding the number of early voting hours to 12.
Holland says his office will mail out notices to everyone along with new voters ID cards so you'll know where your new polling place is.
