Largest voting area in Franklin County split
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Franklin County's largest precinct, Southampton-Mount Rock, is being split in two in time for the Nov. 4 election.
In the April 22 primary, there were 3,206 registered voters in the district to the west of Shippensburg, Pa. On Tuesday President Judge John Walker signed a court order approving the split, said county solicitor Shawn Meyers.
"The room is not large enough to accommodate the large number of voters expected in the upcoming presidential election," Deputy Chief Clerk Jean Byers said of the polling place for Southampton-Mount Rock.
Mount Rock voters will still go to the Southampton Township Municipal Building at 705 Municipal Drive. The polling place for the newly created Southampton-East District is the Living Faith Chapel, 8770 Possum Hollow Road, according to the Voter Registration Office.
