It's a difference most would never notice, but our new precinct names are now in alignment with precinct names across Tennessee from the State's perspective.
Each precinct name now has six characters split by three hyphens. The new names will look more like this, 02-02-U2.
- The first two characters indicate the County Commission district the precinct is in.
- The second two characters are numbers indicating the precinct within that Commission district. For example, on a precinct map, the "01" is in the northwest corner of that Commission district. The "02" is east of that number one, and so on from north to south.
The fifth character is a letter that indicates whether the address is in a municipality or an unincorporated area. The letters are:
- A – Arlington
- B – Bartlett
- C - Collierville
- G - Gemantown
- I - Memphis
- L - Lakeland
- M - Millington
- U - Unincorporated
- A sixth character is a number. This differentiates between the various districts in that precint. The Number one is the largest geographic area, not the number of voters. Each subsequent numeral represets prectints by area - size from largest (1) to smallest.
