Franklin County Moving 18 Voting Locations for General Election

from Board of Elections

Postcards are in the mail and heading to more than 53,000 Franklin County voters - roughly six percent of those registered countywide - to alert them that they will have a new Election Day polling location for the Nov. 3 general election.

Eighteen locations are changing because they are not available for this election or no longer accessible for voters with disabilities.

Each postcard lists the name, address and precinct of the new voting location as well as the legislative and school districts it covers. The board of elections will have signs posted or representatives assigned to the former voting sites to redirect voters to their new location when necessary. Voting locations are also available under the Sample Ballot link on our Web site.

The changes only involve polling places open on Nov. 3. Voters still have the option of voting early by mail or in-person at the board of elections through Nov. 2.
