WASHINGTON COUNTY - Voters used to the same old polling places have had to adapt this year.
About a dozen polling places changed in Washington County, starting with the Sept. 12 primaries.
Washington County Election Director Dorothy Kaetzel said voters received notices of their polling places, but some didn't pay attention and called to ask questions.
Because the county is expanding, the board of elections added four precincts.
The county now has 50 precincts at 49 polling places. Horst Fencing Service on National Pike near Huyetts Crossroads is the polling place for two precincts.
When the changes took effect for the primaries, it was "a mess," Kaetzel said. For example, people were confused when a polling place at Boonsboro High School moved from a gymnasium to a cafeteria, she said
