On March 10, the Clark County Elections Department mailed 4,800 voter registration identification cards to voters. Each county voter who was moved into a different voting precinct was sent a new card. In 2011, the State Legislature passed legislation requiring that all voting precincts in Washington contain 1,500 or less registered voters. As a result of this requirement, along with state law requiring precincts to lie completely within, or completely outside of a city, 19 new precincts were added and 15 existing precinct boundary lines were adjusted. All of these changes have now been completed and the new registration cards were sent to voters along with a letter explaining the reason for the new card.
