Oswego County Election Commissioners Donald Wart and William Scriber announced today that voters in five election districts will report to new locations on Election Day, Nov. 3.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“There are a multitude of reasons for the changes,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Commissioner Wart. Ã¢â‚¬Å“There are security and safety issues for using the schools as polling places, especially with traffic when students are arriving for and being dismissed from school. In addition, some of the sites did not meet ADA requirements and were not convenient for those in the community who are disabled. Others had inadequate parking.Ã¢â‚¬Â
In the City of Oswego, West Side Fire station voters will now vote at the Roy McCrobie Building at 41 Lake St. People who previously voted at the City Hall Rotunda will now vote at the Oswego Elks Club, 132 W. Fifth St., and people who previously voted at Riley Elementary School will now vote at the Oswego County Health Department at 70 Bunner St.
In the town of Albion, voters will no longer use the Dugway Methodist Church. Their new polling place is the Albion Municipal Building at 15 Bridge St., Altmar. In Constantia, voters will use the Cleveland Fire Hall on 31 West St. instead of the Bernhards Bay highway garage.
Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Election Day.
