Several voting precincts in Battle Creek could be consolidated prior to election days in 2018.

According to the Battle Creek City Commission’s agenda, the City Clerk will be holding a presentation for Commissioners on the proposed changes at their meeting Tuesday.

The changes would see Precinct 7 split up between Precincts 12 and 18, Precinct 13 consolidated into 9, 16 split between 15 and 17, and Precinct 19 consolidated into Precinct 1. Some other precincts would see voters shifted between themselves, without one or the other being absorbed or closed.

These proposed changes are set to be discussed by the election commission on December 27, to be finalized no later than January 9. To see a map of current city precincts, go to
