Polling location to be changed

During a Grant County Election Board meeting on Thursday, it was announced the polling location at Pleasant four and seven in Northwood Manor will no longer exist. According to Election Deputy Kathy Foy, Northwood Manor said the location created too much activity for the residents. A new location must be chosen in a bipartisan effort by an appointed Republican and an appointed Democrat. The new polling location must meet Help America Vote Act accessibility standards to allow those with disabilities easy access to vote.

Foy recommended two locations near Northwood Manor on Wabash Road, the First Christian Church and a First Friends Church. There is no set date for when the new location will be chosen, but the board is planning on finalizing the new polling location at least 30 days before the election.
