Six Anderson County Precincts are moving to new polling locations, due to the November settlement agreement with the United States Department of Justice to ensure accessibility of polling locations to persons with disabilities.
“We are required to ensure that every polling place is accessible to persons with disabilities by elections starting in 2019 and that all voters have ease of accessing the polls.” said, Katy Smith, Executive Director. The following precincts will have new polling locations: Belton Annex, Anderson 3/1, Five Forks, La France, Anderson 2/1, and Anderson 2/2. “Every effort is being made to let voters within these precincts know that their polling location has changed,” said Smith. New voter registration cards will be mailed out beginning on Friday, August 30. The voter registration card contains the new polling location and address along with a statement of notification.

700 Blue Ridge Ave Belton; Precinct 078 Anderson 3/1 to Anderson County Library
