Westmoreland County Elections Board members on Tuesday approved changes to some polling locations for the May 21 primary.

Officials moved several polls back into the proper voting districts, allowed for expanded parking and handicapped accessibility and in some instances approved changes in response to requests from landlords who no longer wanted to host precincts, Elections Bureau Director Beth Lechman said.

Relocated polls:

• Jeannette 6th — from Jeannette Italian Club to the Jeannette Christian & Missionary Church, 427 Guy St.

• Lower Burrell 1-1 — from Grace Community Presbyterian Church to Trinity United Christian Church, 3400 Garver Ferry Road.

• Lower Burrell 4-1 — from Puckety Presbyterian Church to Kinloch Volunteer Fire Department Social Hall, 915 New York Ave.

• Penn Township 4-2 — from Penn Township Rescue 6 Building to Community United Methodist Church, 3487 Route 130.

• Trafford Borough 1st Ward — from Trafford EMS Building to St. Regis Parish, 517 Homewood Ave.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
