Montgomery County moving to consolidate polling locations for June 2nd primary election

During a May 4th press conference, Montgomery County Commissioner Ken Lawrence Jr. introduced a proposed plan to consolidate the number of polling locations in the county from 352 to 140 due to the pandemic (a cut of 60 percent).

The plan is for only schools to be utilized since they are not currently in use, have parking, and space for social distancing. After the election, the schools will be sanitized. Most schools will host at least three precincts.

The primary election is June 2nd and this plan would only be valid for the primary. The proposal will be considered by the Election Board during its May 11th meeting.

‎Over the past two days, there has been a lot of discussion about this in West Conshohocken. West Conshohocken only has one voting location and there is not a school within its borders. If the plan is approved, West Conshohocken voters would need to go to a school in Upper Merion Township to cast their ballot.

West Conshohocken Borough Council member Tori Conicello-Emery‎ shared on Facebook that West Conshohocken’s Borough Council will be submitting a formal letter of objection regarding the change.

Full details on the upcoming election and how to obtain a mail-in or absentee ballot can be found here.

Below are the current and proposed voting locations for Conshohocken, West Conshohocken, Plymouth, and Whitemarsh.
