Some voting precincts change

NATCHEZ — Voters in two Adams County precincts should doublecheck their polling locations next week before heading out to cast their ballots in Mississippi’s general election.

Both the Beau Pré and By-Pass Fire Station precincts have been moved to locations that are more secure and accommodating to voters, Election Commissioner Larry Gardner said Tuesday morning.

Beau Pré voters who previously voted at the Church of Christ on Beau Pré Road will now vote across the highway in the Calvary Baptist Church Family Life Center at 522 U.S. 61 South.

“The Beau Pré location was getting too small,” Gardner said. “The number of voters in that precinct has been increasing for a number of years and the space is not large enough to fit all of the voting machines.”

By-Pass fire Station voters will be moving from the fire station on John R. Junkin Drive to Mississippi Automotive Direct (formerly East Honda) at 250 John R. Junkin Drive. The location is directly across the street from Dairy Queen.

Gardner said the move from the fire station was made for various reasons. The building has had electrical problems and climate control issues.

“With the possibility of fire trucks going in and out and the fact that we have voters parking on the side of the highway, we also needed to find a location that was safer and more secure,” Gardner said.

Voters in both precincts have been mailed new voter registration cards and have been asked to destroy their old cards.

Bellemont precinct voters will continue to vote at Crosspoint Baptist Church at 285 Highland Blvd. Earlier this year, the precinct was moved from the Elk’s Lodge on Lower Woodville Road after the building was put up for sale.
