2020 PRECINCT REASSIGNMENTS
Changes were made March 2020 to the voting precincts of Catawba County listed below in order to reduce the size of large precincts and to lessen the distance residents must travel to a polling location. The County Board approved the changes at the Sep 24, 2019 meeting and changes were submitted to the State Board for approval as part of a statewide precinct change project. Changes were approved by the State in early 2020 and took effect after the March 2020 primary.
