COVID-19: Central Florida counties make last-minute changes to voting sites

Some counties in Central Florida have made last-minute changes to polling places.

In Marion County, Supervisor of Elections Wesley Wilcox listed six emergency changes. He told the Ocala Star-Banner some polling places balked at the idea of having hundreds of people visiting in the midst of COVID-19 concerns.

Signs at the old locations direct voters to the emergency polling sites.

Other changes were announced earlier to keep voters out of facilities that serve those most vulnerable to the coronavirus. Here you’ll find recent changes announced by area counties. More information is available at the supervisor of elections websites.
