Mar 3, 2008  

Voters in Athens County Precincts 1-4, 1-5a, 1-5b and 2-2 need to take special note of possible changes in their polling locations in light of the Ohio University men's basketball game that will take place in the Convocation Center on Tuesday.

All polling locations in Athens County will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The Convo will open its doors for the basketball game at 5:30 p.m., limiting the number of access points for polling locations. The basketball game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

Please take note of changes to polling locations as well as specific access points for locations that will remain in the Convo.

  • Voters in Precinct 2-2 will be voting at The Ridges Auditorium, which is located in Building 23 on North Ridge Drive. Voters are asked to park in lot 201. Any voters in this precinct who arrive at the Convo will be redirected to The Ridges.

  • Voters in Precinct 1-4 will vote on the concourse level of the Convo. Voters should enter the Convo at the concourse level door at the back of the building, adjacent to the student entrance. After 5:30 p.m., this will be the only entrance by which the polling location will be accessible.

  • Voters in Precinct 1-5a and 1-5b will vote in the first-floor main lobby of the Convo. Voters may access this polling location by entering from either entrance (first floor or concourse level) adjacent to Richland Avenue. After 5:30 p.m., these will be the only entrances by which the polling location will be accessible.
