Two polling places change for election

In the Hagerstown primary election Tuesday, most city voters will be able to cast their ballots at the same place they voted in federal, state and county elections, but not those who voted at South Hagerstown High School or Pangborn Elementary School, said Dorothy Kaetzel, election director at the Washington County Election Board.

City voters who voted at South Hagerstown High School in other elections are to vote at Bester Elementary School in city elections, Kaetzel said.

Those who voted at Pangborn Elementary School in other elections should go to Christ Lutheran Church to vote in city elections, she said.

Only city voters who are registered Republicans or Democrats can vote in the city's Tuesday primary.

The South High and Pangborn polling places are not used in city elections because there are not enough city voters in those areas to justify using them in city elections. Most of the voters that vote at those locations in other elections do not live in the city, Kaetzel said.

In the Tuesday primary, Democrats will be narrowing the field of mayoral and city council candidates from their party.

The city's Republican primary is for council candidates only, because incumbent Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II is the only Republican running for mayor.

City voters not registered with a political party and those registered as members of other political parties cannot vote in the primary, but can vote in the city's May 15 general election.
