POTTSTOWN, Pa. - Pottstown's fourth ward councilwoman reminded those in attendance at Tuesday night's general council meeting of the changes in polling locations for some residents.
The new locations affect the borough's fourth through seventh wards for in-person voting on Election Day, Nov. 3.
Councilwoman Trenita Lindsay said the most updated list of all polling places for all of Montgomery County can be found at the county's website.
Pottstown's website, which is in the process of being updated by the borough secretary, still contains the old locations as of May 21 this year.
The most updated changes per ward are as follows:
Pottstown's Fourth Ward -- new voting location is First Church of Brethren, 371 York Street. (The old location was Grace Evangelical Church on Charlotte Street.)
Fifth Ward -- new location is Montgomery County Community College, Pottstown Campus, 701 College Drive. (The old polling place was First Presbyterian Church on North Evans Street.)
Sixth and Seventh wards -- new location for both wards is Rickettts Community Center at 658 Beech Street. (The old locations were the Pottstown Area Senior Center on Moser Road and St. James Lutheran Church on East High Street, respectively.)
Borough Manager Justin Keller noted the only location in the borough for depositing mail-in ballots in person is at Montgomery County Community College's west campus location in the old AAA building, located at 95 S. Hanover Street.
Individual ballots must be dropped off by individual voters. Therefore, even if several ballots are being returned from the same household, each voter must individually deposit it in person at the ballot box.
