Five Clermont County polling locations are changing for the Nov. 3 General Election in Clermont County.
“In response to voter’s concerns with overcrowded polling locations (due to growing population in some areas) and the need to make our sites handicap accessible, the Board of Elections is moving five of our polling places,” said Clermont Board of Elections Director Judy Miller.
• In Miami Township, (only those voting in Miami Township precincts X, I11, K1K and PIP at Boyd E. Smith Elementary), will now be casting ballots at the Oasis Conference Center, located at 902 Loveland Miamiville Road.
In Milford, all voters at St. Andrews Church, will now be voting at the Milford American Legion post, located on Victor Stier Drive.
In Stonelick Township, those who have voted at the Stonelick Township Firehouse will move to the Wildwood Full Gospel Church, located at 5727 Stonelick Williams Corner Road.
In Union Township, all voters at the Cincinnati Nature Center (precincts A, F1F, and S1S), will now be casting their ballots at the Tealtown Ball Park, located at 4762 Tealtown Road.
"We encourage citizens to vote early by requesting an absentee ballot and voting by mail; call the Board of Elections offices to obtain an absentee ballot application at (513) 732-7275, or download an application at www.ClermontElections.org.
You may also stop by during regular office hours (8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday) to vote early," said Miller.
There are 135,000 registered voters in Clermont County; Miller expects a 40 percent turnout for the November 2009 election, with a number of local contests and the casino issue on the ballot.
