As Florida lawmakers continue wrangling with redistricting, the state’s county elections supervisors say their drop-dead date for district boundary changes is mid-December.

 

Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner says supervisors need to know about changes sooner than later.

 

“We’re getting close to a time period in which the supervisors really need to know and we’re anticipating that the courts in the near future some time in December will have some final maps,” Detzner said.
