Please refer to the link below to see a spreadsheet identifying the changes that
were made during our 2006 re-numbering project. 

It became necessary in 2006, due to growth in Washoe County, to convert to a four-digit precinct numbering system.  All district and precinct boundaries remain the same, only the numbers have changed.  Some very general geographical characteristics have been used in the numbering system to help us more easily identify a precint's approximate location within the County. 

The numbering system is as follows:

1000 series-Reno City Ward 1
2000 series-Reno City Ward 2
3000 series-Reno City Ward 3
4000 series-Reno City Ward 4
5000 series-Reno City Ward 5
6000 series-Sparks City
            Within the 6000 series, the second digit reflects the Sparks City Ward (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
7000 series-County precinct situated NORTH of Interstate 80
            Within the 7000 series, the second digit reflects the County Commission District (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
8000 series-County precinct situated SOUTH of Interstate 80
            Within the 8000 series, the second digit reflects the County Commission District (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
9000 series (EXCEPT 9700, 9800, 9900)-County mailing precinct with NO VOTERS
               W
ithin the 9000 series, the second digit reflects the County Commission District (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

9700-FOC (foreign overseas citizens)
9800-NFR (no fixed residence)
9900-Provisional voters
