Why did my polling place move?

Polling places are not permanent.. The most common reason that polling places change is that, from one election to the next, the polling place previously used is no longer available.  Changes to precinct boundaries may sometimes occur when precincts are consolidated or realigned, usually when the county is conducting a smaller local election, rather than a county-wide or statewide election.  In a smaller election, not as many polling places are needed.  Finally, if there is a change in the number of registered voters, usually caused by population growth in a particular area, polling places may change to accommodate the new number of registered voters.
