Precinct Lines and Polling Locations Changed

ANDERSON, S.C. (Sept.  16, 2019) – Four Anderson County Precincts are being re-designated and two are moving to new polling locations.  These changes have come about due to the recent settlement from November 2018 with the United States Department of Justice to ensure accessibility of polling locations to persons with disabilities, and growing concerns of long wait times at the polls on election day.

“We are required to ensure that every polling place is accessible to persons with disabilities by elections starting in 2019 and that all voters have ease of accessing the polls.” said, Katy Smith, Executive Director. While all four precincts had a shift of voters due to the re-designation of lines, only the West Savannah and Flat Rock precincts polling locations had to be relocated. “Every effort is being made to let voters within these precincts know about these changes,” said Smith. New voter registration cards will be mailed out beginning on Tuesday. It will contain all the information about name of polling location and address along with the precinct name.
