OSWEGO, NY – Voters in many Oswego County communities will have new polling places this fall.
Election commissioners Donald Wart and Richard Atkins said several polling spots were consolidated or moved in order to accommodate the new optical scan voting systems and improve accessibility to people with disabilities.
On Primary Day, Sept. 13, polls will be open noon to 9 p.m.
Poll sites that have been consolidated or moved are as follows:
Hastings: Districts 4 and 8 will now vote in the Central Square American Legion. Voters previously voted at the Central Square Fire Department.
