Gripes lead to poll location change

February 09, 2008

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Berkeley County voters who reside in precincts 106 and 110 will have a new place to cast their ballots in the upcoming May 13 primary election, County Clerk John W. Small Jr. told the county commission Thursday.

Small said voters in the precincts that include the communities of Tablers Station, Darkesville and Inwood, W.Va., along U.S. 11 will vote at the Inwood Assembly of God Church, which agreed to provide space.

Small said his office received complaints from poll workers, voters and other election officials that the former polling location, the South Berkeley Volunteer Fire Department's substation, had poor lighting and inadequate space for two precincts, among other concerns.

Small said every registered voter is expected to be notified by postcard of the new polling location along U.S. 11, and signs would be placed at both locations to alert voters.
