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.
