Regular Polling Site Not In Use For Augusta Special Election

Posted: Updated:

Tomorrow is election day for many in Augusta. Voters will be casting ballots in the Georgia House of Representatives District 127 race to replace Quincy Murphy, who died in August.

But voters who normally cast their ballots at New Life Worship Center on Morgan Road could be in for a surprise. It's no longer a polling site, you'll still be able to take part in the election but have been assigned to a new precinct.

"If you are a voter who lives in House District 127, and New Life Worship Center was your polling place, you need to report to the Trinity CME church on Glenn Hills Drive that is you new election day polling site. it was changed for what reason, it was changed because the facility no longer desired to be a polling place, says Richmond County Board of Elections Executive Director Lynn Bailey.

"It was changed for what reason?" we asked. "It was changed because the facility no longer desired to be a polling place,"said Bailey. 

Bailey says voters who have questions can call the Board of Elections office at 706-821-2340 or go online to the Georgia Secretary of State's website to see where they vote.

Polls open Tuesday morning at 7:00 a.m. and close at 7:00 p.m.

Only seven of Augusta's 50 polling places will be open, with about $16,000 registered voters eligible.
