Notice of Action - Elections

Notice of Action:  At its January 5, 2022 board meeting, the Allegany County Board of Elections considered the following changes to polling places:

  • Combining Living Stone Church of the Brethren, South Penn Elementary School, and Emmanuel Bethel United Methodist Church with Fort Hill High School.  Voting would take place at Fort Hill.

  • Combining Braddock Middle School with Bowman’s Addition Fire Hall.  Voting would take place at Braddock Middle School.

  • Combining Emmanuel Episcopal Church and West Side Elementary School with Allegany High School. Voting would take place at Allegany High School.

  • Consolidating Westernport Elementary School and Barton Council Chamber with Westmar Middle School.  Voting would take place at the gym at Westmar Middle School.  Election results for these precincts would be reported separately.  They will only share the same polling place location.  

  • Considered finding an alternate location for the polling place currently located at the Ramada Inn. We have not had a response from the polling place agreements that we sent out in November from this location.  Discussion took place regarding Trinity Lutheran Church but there was a problem with the sidewalk meeting the ADA criteria.  We are currently working on a resolution for this problem.  

No action was taken at this time.  A final decision and vote will take place with the redistricting process.
