One of Morgan County’s Largest Voting Precincts Changes Location

UNION HILL, Ala. (WHNT)- The Union Hill voting precinct, which is in the eastern part of the county on Brindlee Mountain, is one of the largest in the county outside of the cities.  According to the Morgan County Probate Judge’s office, around 2400 people are registered to vote at the the location.

For decades people in that area voted at Union Hill School, but starting with the June 3rd party primaries that will change.   Voters will now cast ballots at the new senior center across the intersection from the school.

Many counties are moving away from having polling locations at schools.   It’s to both cut down on traffic congestion and also for safety reasons.

    Safety reasons? As someone who lives within this precinct I gotta have that one explained to me.

      I live there also. I’m sure you’ve observed the large number of folks that are on school property throughout the day. These folks do not have to sign in at the front office. Don’t act like we don’t have more than our fair share of crazies and criminals in Union Hill/Morgan City. It won’t be a big deal to vote at the new expensive senior center. At least it will be used for something….
