Kelly Beach, Secretary of the Muskogee County Election Board announced today that the polling location for Precinct 41 in Fort Gibson will be relocated to the Fort Gibson Church of Christ, 806 S. Lee Street in Fort Gibson.
The voters in Precinct 41 traditionally voted at the Fort Gibson City Hall.
Beach said that he has received several complaints from voters over the City Hall facility due to the lack of parking space, particularly during Federal, State and County elections. Beach said that it only makes sense to utilize the church as a polling place due to their large parking lot.
Voters in Precinct 40 already vote at the church, the move will combine Precincts 40 and 41 in to one polling facility.
The change will take effect in time for the Primary Run-Off Election on August 26, 2014.
