JONESBORO—Voters in Jonesboro who usually cast their ballots at the old Firehouse Museum may need to do so at the Police Department in the next municipal election.
According to a notice posted on the Firehouse Museum door at 103 W. Mill St. by Elections Superintendent Ricky L. Clark, Jr., "The Firehouse Museum is no longer available as a polling site and the Elections Superintendent plans to relocate the voters effective for the next scheduled election on November 5, 2019."
The notice designates the proposed new location as the Jonesboro Police Department, 170 S. Main St., Jonesboro.
Anyone who objects to the change should attend a public hearing on Sept. 3 at 6 p.m. in the Chambers of the Jonesboro Police Department, according to the notice. Objections may be filed before then in writing or made orally at the hearing.
Anyone with questions about this change or one's own voter registration status may call Jonesboro City Hall, (770) 478-3800. Voters also may check registration and polling places, and non-registered citizens who wish to register to vote in the upcoming election, may do so online at the Georgia Secretary of State's My Voter Page at https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do
The move comes as the Firehouse Museum undergoes renovations as part of the Broad Street Project.
