Editor;’s note: Last we heard. the district assignments are still uncertain since a judge put an injunction out on the redistricting.

 Thanks to our Supervisor of Elections, Janet Adkins, we now have the latest scoop on the newly signed Congressional Districts for Florida. A lawsuit has been filed against the DeSantis-approved Congressional redistricting map, so things remain unsettled. That said, given the timeframe to qualify, there is limited time to file and qualify, so changing anything now could cause chaos. Most everything you want to know about Nassau County elected positions / candidates can be found on the SOE’s website at VoteNassauFL.gov, which also included the latest DeSantis-approved Congressional map.

The Congressional Districts can be found directly at https://redistricting.maps.arcgis.com/apps/View/index.html?appid=2c92665fc1d14fc2becb3030e23a4595

This map is expandable, so you can drill down to see that all of Nassau County is in the new District 4. Essentially, the south eastern border of District 4 now runs  along the St. John’s River, with a tiny exception just north of the Arlington Expressway in JAX, and along the river, over to the Dames Point Bridge.  Everything south / east of the St. Johns river is the new District 5, which will be Congressman John Rutherford’s new district.

You can see all the other voting district maps for Nassau County at   https://www.votenassaufl.gov/newpage

(Under Voters > Maps & Districts …and then look for the specific district you are interested in, such as “Nassau County Commission, School Board, and Ocean Highway & Port Authority District,” or “Florida House of Representatives Districts,” or “Florida Senate Districts,” etc.

All maps are approved with the exception of the Congressional map which is subject to the pending the lawsuit.

Thanks to our member who sent this article about Rory Diamond possibly running for Congress in the “new” District 4:https://floridapolitics.com/archives/518628-rory-diamond-moves-closer-to-jax-area-congressional-run/

An important state level seat to watch is Agriculture Commissioner. Remember this position handles Second Amendment issues. Check out this article:   https://floridapolitics.com/archives/513972-chuck-nadd-files-for-agriculture-commissioner/

Things are heating up. If you want to run for any of the open seats, now is the time to get serious.

As Genera Michael Flynn says, “Local action has national impact.”

Think about that,
