The county board of elections shall submit to the Executive Director of the State Board of Elections for approval every proposed change to a precinct name, and the Executive Director shall approve a name change only if it complies with this section. (2004-127, s. 1(b); 2017-6, s. 3; 2018-146, s. 3.1(a), (b).)
