Oxford, Stansells precincts to change polling, voting spots
The polling locations for two Newton County voting precincts are changing this year.
The Oxford precinct will be moved from the Oxford Community Center to Oxford City Hall, 110 West Clark St., and the Stansells precinct will be moved from Believer’s Fellowship on Christian Circle to Voice of Pentecost, 4648 Salem Road.
The Newton County Board of Elections is expected to issue a final order for the changes at its monthly meeting at 2 p. m., Monday at the board of elections, 1113 Usher St., Covington.
The board of elec- tions will then submit the changes to the U. S. Dept. of Justice for preclearance, said Assistant Direc- tor Angela Mantle. The board hopes to officially make the changes later this year.
