Voters in the Calvary, Firehouse, Glasscock and St. Charles precincts will be going somewhere new to cast their ballots in the Primary Election on May 19.
"We're trying to keep them as close as possible to where they are now," Marion County Clerk Chad Mattingly said.
Three of those precincts have been moved from inside schools to other locations. Marion County Public Schools officials have been discussing moving those polling places with the county clerk because the change will allow the school district to use election day as a make-up day.
Voters in the Fire Department precinct have been voting at the Marion County Public Library will be moving as well. The library precinct will still vote at the library, however.
Mattingly said separating those precincts should help alleviate some congestion in the library's parking lot on election days.
Here are the proposed changes:
• The Calvary precinct (D103) will most likely be moved into the Holy Name of Mary Church parish hall, 3265 Hwy 208 in Lebanon, according to Mattingly.
• The Glasscock precinct (A103) will move to Open Arms Community Church, 2205 Danville Road in Lebanon.
• The Fire Department precinct (A104) will move to the 21st Century Learning Center, 214 N. Harrison Street in Lebanon.
• The St. Charles precinct (H104) will move to the St. Charles Church parish hall, 675 Hwy. 327 in Lebanon.
Voters who do not know their precinct can find out by calling the county clerk's office at 270-692-2651.

Voter registration deadline is Monday
First-time voters have until Monday, April 20, to register if they want to vote in the May 19 primary. To register, eligible voters should go to the Marion County Clerk's Office, 223 North Spalding Avenue, Suite 102.
