Mandatory redistricting efforts have caused some McClain County precinct boundaries to change.
As a result, some voters will be assigned to new polling places.
That’s the word from McClain County Election Board Secretary Karen Haley.
Precinct boundary lines must be evaluated every 10 years following the redistricting of congressional, legislative and county commissioner districts.
Redistricting occurs following the federal census to ensure that the population in the various districts is equal.
Two new precinct and polling places were added in McClain County due to the boundary lines of State House District 20 changing.
Midway Baptist Church – Precinct 25 and Union Hill Baptist Church – Precinct 22, will have voters for the first time on the June 28 primary election.
Wayne United Methodist Church is no longer a polling place. Those voters will now vote at the Mid-America Technology Center – Precinct 3.
Haley said new voter identification cards, along with polling place information, have been mailed to all voters affected by the new precinct lines. Voters can also use the OK Voter Portal oklahoma.gov/elections/ovp to find their polling place information. Polling place changes are effective immediately.
Voters with questions should contact the McClain County Election Board at 405-527-3121 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The election board is located at 121 N 2nd Avenue in Purcell and is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
