POLLING PLACE CHANGE FOR WARD 1 –On June 29th we received word that the National Guard Armory, home to voters in Ward 1, is unexpectedly unavailable for the August 11th primary election, so the Ward 1 polling place has been relocated to Johnson Hall at the Fairgrounds (400 West Union Street).
Following the August primary, staff will recommend we reverse course and go back to the Armory for the big presidential election in November.
Ward 1 polling place: Johnson Hall at the Fairgrounds, 400 West Union Street.
Ward 2 polling place: Community Center, 600 South Fifth Street.
