Where Do I Vote? Several polling locations have changed in Harrisburg

The Susquehanna Art Museum will serve as an emergency polling station for Ward 6 in Harrisburg.

The municipal primary is fast approaching, prompting Dauphin County to remind voters that several polling stations have changed in Harrisburg.

Recently, the county changed three voting places in the city due to various issues with the former locations, Board of Elections Director Gerald Feaser has said.

For the 6th Ward, the board just this week found it had to move the polling location to the Susquehanna Art Museum, 1401 N. 3rd St., from the United House of Prayer for All People on Reily Street. This emergency move is due to construction at the church that has taken longer than expected, according to the county.

In the 9th Ward, 2nd Precinct, the polling station has been moved to the Choice Community Christian Church Social Hall, 1524 Walnut St. This change was made because the former location, the Unitarian Church of Harrisburg, was sold, and the new owner plans to begin construction work. Also, the old site was not compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations, the county said.

In the 11th Ward, the polling place has been moved to the Governor’s Square Community Room, 2018 N. 5th St. The former location, the Neighborhood Center on N. 3rd Street, no longer wanted to serve as a polling site, according to the county.

The primary election is slated for Tuesday, May 21.
