Remapping forces city to close 6 poll sites

August 11, 2012

WOONSOCKET – Six polling places voters have been using for at least a decade have been permanently retired as part of a statewide redistricting effort earlier this year.
As a result of the remapping of voting districts, the city’s total number of polling places has shrunk from 16 to 11, according to Estelle Corriveau, manager of the Board of Canvassers.
In addition to losing six polling places, one new one was added – Woonsocket Middle School at Hamlet, 60 Florence Drive.
Residents who used to vote at one of the retired polling places were sent postcards during the last week of June to inform them where they are to cast ballots. An advertisement which is to appear in The Call on Aug. 21 will mark the second formal notification of the changes before the primary on Sept. 11.
Dropped from the roster of longtime polling stations were St. Agatha’s Church, 34 Joffre Ave.; Fire Station No. 4, 806 Mendon Road; St. Stanislaus Church, 188 Harris Ave.; Fire Station No. 2, 5 Cumberland Hill Road; Sacred Heart Church, 415 Olo St.; and the Community Room at 66 Morin Heights Blvd.
