Election Commission Mulls Moving Precincts

The details have yet to be worked out, but members of the Putnam County Election Commission this week voted to use the new Prescott South schools, which opened this month as the location of TWO voting precincts in the future. One of the precincts is currently located in the Cookeville Electric Department building on Davis Road, while the other had made use of the Water Department building on South Jefferson Avenue. But election officials say their effort to make sure all precincts are as accessible to voters as possible led them to consider using the new elementary school for one polling location and the middle school for the other. When the details are finalized, which may not be for several months yet, any affected voters will be notified.
