We support HB799 because it sets a time limit on when precincts can be changed. Local governments would have seven years from the previous U.S. Census to make such a change and only during that time.  Since pre-clearance with the U.S. Department of Justice is no longer required, this would be an effective way to limit changes that could cause confusion and lead to a decline in voter participation.
