Seven locations approved as voting centers in Wicomico County
SALISBURY, Md. – Seven buildings across Wicomico County have gotten the green light to be used as voting centers for the upcoming general election. James M. Bennett High School, Bennett Middle School, Salisbury Middle School, Beaver Run Elementary School, Pemberton Elementary School, Mardela Middle and High School, and the Wicomico County Youth and Civic Center will all serve as voting centers. Local election officials tell 47 ABC voters can use any center in the county to cast ballots in person instead of having to go to specific polling locations on election day. Which officials say will likely make the voting process go much smoother.
“This will allow us to have these locations in larger places like gymnasiums. We’ll be able to assign more judges and more equipment which should make the process faster for voters who still need to go on election day. We’re still joining Governor Hogan in encouraging all voters to consider using a mail-in ballot process,” said Wicomico County Board of Elections Director, Anthony Gutierrez.
The State Board of Elections recently approved vote center plans in Talbot, Worcester, and Somerset County as well.
