Bullitt County court order changes polling place for 76 voters in Pleasant Grove
PLEASANT GROVE, KY (WAVE) - At 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, an hour and half before polls closed for the midterm election, a public notice alerted a change in polling place for 76 voters in Bullitt County.
Voters who live in the Pleasant Grove community on the following four roads were “improperly coded” into Mt. Washington:
- Alpar Lane
- Pare Court
- Pleasant View Court
- Beagle Run
The coding issue was revealed by the county’s Board of Elections Chairman, Kevin Mooney, who said a Circuit Court order caused the change.
Any registered voter who lives on those four roads should go to Pleasant Grove Elementary School, located at 6415 KY-44 in Mt. Washington to vote.
They were originally told to go to Eastside Middle School -- but should not go there to vote. One voter reached out to WAVE 3 News saying he voted at 3 p.m. and was made aware of the change at that time.
No other areas of the county were affected by the coding error.
Polls close in Kentucky at 6 p.m. local time.
Voters with questions can call Mooney at his office: 502-543-2513.
