FARMINGTON, AR -- One Washington County city is splitting its voting precincts. A new state law requires all precincts with more than 3,000 registered voters to be split, so the county election commission has divided Farmington into two precincts. The dividing line will be Highway 62, with Precinct 1 to the north and Precinct 2 to the south.

According to the election commission, the change takes effect immediately, but voters shouldn't notice any difference.
