The Supervisor, Town Clerk, and Assessors of Brookhaven Town met at the Town Clerk's Office at Yaphank on Friday, July 18th to redistrict the town according to the new ballot law. They made fourteen districts instead of nine.

This district is called by its old number, seven and is bounded west by the road from Port Jefferson to Patchogue, east by the road north and south between C. Raynor's & the school house at Manorville, south by the L.I.R. R. south of the "Butt line".

They meet again in Sept. to determine where the polling places shall be. Yaphank being in the centre of the district the Courier thinks the elections should be held here.
