St. Johns County voters have been affected by the redistricting court cases. Voters in the north part of the county are now in Congressional District 4, and state Senate District 7. Florida House District 17 was not changed. You will see candidates for these new districts in the primary. Prior to the election, all voters will receive a sample ballot based on their party affiliation and precinct.

Many important races will appear on the ballot in the primary this year, including U.S. Senate and U.S. Congress.
