Precincts & Districts
A precinct is the area assigned by the Supervisor of Elections that designates where you vote based on your current permanent residence address. Each precinct is designated with a number and has a specific location where its residents go to vote. Escambia County, Florida, currently has 79 active precincts. You can find your precinct number and polling location using our online Precinct Finder application.
A district is a division of the State, County, or Municipality represented by an elected official who represents constituents. The area of each district is based on the population of geographic boundaries drawn by the governing bodies. Each of these districts is represented by a number that designates a specific state or local office. For example: House of Representatives, District 1; City Council, District 4; School Board, District 2; and so on. In Escambia County, there are:
- One Congressional District – 1
- One Senate District – 1
- Two House of Representatives Districts- 1 and 2
- Five County Commission Districts – 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
- Five ECUA Districts- 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
- Five School Board Districts- 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
- Seven City of Pensacola Districts- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7
Locally, the Escambia County Commission, School Board, ECUA and City of Pensacola are all divided into single-member districts, which means voters elect only the officials within their respective district. In addition to the elected officials who represent specific geographic districts within the County and City, there are “at-large” elected officials. These elected officials represent an entire geographical area within the County or City and their representation is not tied to district boundaries. For example, the Century Town Council and Mayor are elected at-large.
