If you are planning to vote in the next primary election – listen up!

Your polling place could be changing.

On Monday morning, the Houston County Commission approved a resolution to change polling places in three different precincts.

So, if your polling place was at the Water and Electric Complex on South Park Avenue in Dothan, your new polling place will be at Selma Baptist Church.

If you voted at the Madrid Senior Center in Cottonwood, you will now vote at Madrid Baptist Church.

And for those of you cast ballots at the Hodgesville Volunteer Fire Department in Dothan, you will now do so at Memphis Baptist Church.

“We have evaluated the various locations for the precinct changes to ensure there’s adequate parking, adequate handicap spaces, restroom facilities ingress and egress, step or incline approach, all the things that’s necessary for us to determine if a precinct location is appropriate,” said Houston County Probate Judge, Patrick Davenport.

He said the changes were necessary to make it easier to accommodate a growing number of voters, and to clean up district and boundary lines.

The changes take effect on March 3, 2020, for the primary election.
