URGENT: The Northern Precinct May Not be Open for Voters

UPDATE: 11/7/11 Media will have the Northern Precint, and all precincts open for election day.  7am to 8pm.

As of this morning, there is a real possibility that Media will not be able to open the Northern Precinct for voters this Tuesday, November 8th.  Due to lack of volunteers, we do not have enough people to staff the polls.
If you or someone you may know who lives in the Norther Precinct can help with this effort, please email me  Media also needs help in the Western and Eastern Precincts too.

    Hi Ted. Please elaborate. If the precinct polling place is closed, does this mean people who would normally vote there cannot vote at all? Will they be able to vote at another precinct's polling place? Thanks for any info you can provide.

  2. Brendan,

    I'm working on getting that information this afternoon. Truthfully, I've not seen this happen before, so it's new to me as well. Worst case I think the Elections Bureau would have to consolidate one precinct with another.....but I don't know that for sure. We were barely able to staff the West for Tuesday.

    What we need are volunteers to accept the Judge of Elections position, Majority/Minority Inspector and Machine operator.

    I'll provide updates as I get them.



  3. With the help of both democrats and republican leaders, it looks like we will have the Northern Precinct open for voters.
