The former Zachariah Connell Elementary School, which closed at the end of the last school year, will remain the polling location for the Nov. 5 general election.

Fayette County Election Bureau Director Larry Blosser said city residents who have voted at the former school in the past will continue to do so.

“The polling locations are all the same,” said Blosser. “Unless something happens that is unexpected, the polling places are where they were before.”

All polling sites will open at 7 a.m. Nov. 5. Polls close at 8 p.m.

“It's really hard to predict what kind of a turnout there will be,” Blosser said, adding the cutoff for new registered voters and those who changed party affiliation was Oct. 7.

“We didn't really see a lot of new ones come in,” Blosser said of those filling out paperwork to be new voters.

Although the law that requires voters to show photo identification at the polls is not in effect for this election, Blosser said poll workers have been instructed to ask each voter for photo identification.

“People have to understand that they are instructed by the state to ask,” Blosser said. “If a voter does not have it, then they can still vote. They will be given a piece of paper with information on how to obtain photo ID but they will not be turned away. We just want people to know that this is something that is handed down from the state and they must ask for the identification.”

If someone has recently moved, it is recommended they check to see where their voting location is.

Blosser said the bureau's website contains all the candidates and information on polling sites.

It lists all of the sites that are not handicapped-accessible.
