COFFEE CO., Ala. (WDHN)—It’s just a little more than six weeks before the May 24th Alabama primary, and in Coffee County about
five-thousand voters of the approximate 36-thousand registered voters will be casting their ballots at a different precinct than in previous elections.

With the Jug Brown Enterprise Recreation Center planned for demolition, those voters will be moved to the city’s
Civic Center. In smaller precincts, the Victoria and Chestnut Grove polling locations will be consolidated with
other precincts.

Coffee County’s three-member board of registrars is working to notify those affected, as well as voters who
have been moved due to commission redistricting due to the 2020 census numbers.

Coffee County Board of Registrars Denine Richey says
“Out of the county of almost 36 thousand registered voters. We’re talking about mailouts to the five thousand voters who will be going to a different location during this next election.”

Chestnut Grove will now vote at the Frisco precinct, and Victoria voters will be moved to Wise Mill.

Richey says ” 2-thousand-686 somewhere around there can be saved by targeting with mail those voters who will
have to move to a different precinct. With just three people
in the registrar’s office, it’ll be time-consuming to get it done.

The last day to register to vote in the upcoming primary is May ninth.
