The Halifax County Board of Elections today announced precinct changes ahead of the November 3 election.
The changes are mainly due to a lack of parking, elections Director Kristin Scott said.
The changes affect voters in Roanoke Rapids, Weldon, and the Darlington community.
They are as follows:
Voters who reside in the Roanoke Rapids 10 precinct — formerly Becker Manor — will be relocated to Roanoke Rapids First Pentecostal Holiness Church located at 145 Old Farm Road in Roanoke Rapids. The voting enclosure will be set up in the gymnasium.
Voters who reside in the Weldon 3 precinct — formerly Mystique Management — will be relocated to the American Legion located at 717 American Legion Roadd, Roanoke Rapids.
Voters who reside in the Faucett precinct — formerly Darlington Fire Department — will be relocated to the Darlington Community Center located at 2324 Hedgepeth Road, Halifax.
The polls on November 3 will open at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.
New precinct names
Scott also released the names of precincts after a consolidation was announced last month.
They are as follows:
Littleton 1 and Littleton 2 voters will be merged together using the Littleton Methodist Church located at 105 E South Main Street in Littleton as the polling site. The new name of this precinct will be known as the Littleton Precinct.
Roanoke Rapids 3 and Roanoke Rapids 4 voters will be merged together continuing to use the Lloyd Andrews Building located at 700 Jackson Street in Roanoke Rapids as the polling site. The new name for this precinct will be known as Roanoke Rapids 3-4 Precinct.
Roanoke Rapids 5 and Roanoke Rapids Civic Center voters will be merged together continuing to use the Kirkwood Adams Civic Center located at 1100 Hamilton Street in Roanoke Rapids as the polling site. The new name for this precinct will be known as Roanoke Rapids Community.
Roanoke Rapids 7 and Roanoke Rapids 9 voters will be merged together continuing to use the Davie Fire Department located at 3155 Highway 158, Roanoke Rapids. The new name for this precinct will be known as Roanoke Rapids 7-9.
These changes will be effective immediately. Voters who are affected by the change should expect to receive a voter verification card in the near future. They are asked to review them carefully.
Voters in the Roanoke Rapids 10 and Weldon 3 precincts were already mailed a card.
