If you voted today or tried to vote you may have noticed some changes at your precinct; depending on where you have voted in the past.
After the 2010 census new lines were drawn changing some areas that used to be District 1, that district became smaller; losing parts of St. Paul in the Ravenel area as well as portions of North Charleston, which are now part of District 6.
That is why some people could not vote Tuesday because they simply no longer lived in District one.
While it has been like this since the 2012 Election, local officials like Charleston County's Director Joe Debney, says there are still a lot of questions from voters.
"Every ten years we have a census and after the census each Congressional, U.S. Senate the South Carolina House they all go through a districting change all the way down to the city of Charleston. When they go through that change they redraw that line-- and when that happens voters are either in that new district or out of that district."
Election officials do say they gave notice to the public when the changes to district lines were made. However election officials say they asked county council for the $100-thousand it would cost to mail out new voter registration cards.
Council members did not want to spend that money, so for now voters will have to go to Election Headquarters to get a new card with the new district. A little good news though, once things are sorted out, voters will not have to worry about it again until after the census count in 2020.
