Some Greene County Voters Change Polling Places

Voters heading out to the polls tomorrow need to check the voter cards to make sure they are headed to the right places. KSMU’s Kristian Kriner reports.

Springfield residents will be voting for mayor, city council and school district candidates in the Municipal General Election.

There will be 10 school districts, nine cities and four fire districts holding elections.

Richard Struckoff, Greene County Clerk, says 4,000 people in the Republic School District will not be voting, because they have nothing to vote on.

“Well, we actually have one polling place that won’t even be open tomorrow and that’s Pond Creek. The voters in Pond Creek live in the R-3 school district, who is not holding an election, so it is a very rare occurrence, but we are closing an entire polling place,” Struckoff said.

He says this is the first time a district will not be having an election.Struckoff says voters should be aware of new polling places.

“We have one permanent change for tomorrow. The people that vote in 2nd Franklin Township used to go to Pleasant View School to vote, but now they’ll be going to the Northside Christian Church, which is 4902 North State Highway H,” Struckoff said.

He says most voters will return to their regular polling places, not the temporary sites they were assigned to in November.

Struckoff says all voters need to check their green voter cards to make sure they are voting in the right places.

He says he expects a voter turnout of between 10 and 15 percent.
