For Tuesday municipal elections, voting locations change in 5 towns


Tuesday is election day for municipal races and ballot questions in 21 of Palm Beach County’s 39 cities and towns.

Voting precincts will be opened from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in those municipalities, including Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, Royal Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Belle Glade and Pahokee among the 21.

Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher said Monday that her staff should have the first round of results — the absentee ballots — posted between 7 and 7:30 p.m. Tuesday on her website, pbcelections.org, and she hopes they will have most of results by 10:30 p.m., unless there are very close races.

Elections results and updates also will be available all Tuesday night at PalmBeachPost.com.

As of Friday, Bucher’s office had mailed nearly 52,000 vote-by-mail ballots to voters, and 8,485 of those ballots had been returned. Bucher estimated that roughly 3,000 more were returned by 1 p.m. Monday, but she didn’t have an official count.

For voters who haven’t yet mailed their absentee ballot, Bucher said they can be dropped off by 7 p.m. Tuesday at her main office, 240 S. Military Trail, West Palm Beach.

Bucher’s satellite offices will accept ballots until 5 p.m. Tuesday. They are located at 3188 PGA Blvd., Room #2401, Palm Beach Gardens; 345 S. Congress Ave., Room #103, Delray Beach; and 2976 State Road 15, Belle Glade.

Bucher said everything is progressing smoothly for the election with no issues, but she noted changes in some voting locations in Palm Beach Gardens, Greenacres, Highland Beach, Lake Worth and Boca Raton.

These three cities have temporary changes in some voting locations for this election only:

In Palm Beach Gardens, voters in precincts 1284, 1306, 1310 and 1340 who are usually assigned to Palm Beach State College Eissey Campus Theater will instead vote at the Gardens branch of the Palm Beach County Library at 11303 Campus Drive.

In Greenacres, voters in precincts 2194 and 2202 who usually vote at L.C. Swain Middle School will instead vote at the First Baptist Church at 201 Swain Blvd. Precinct 2206 voters who usually vote at Heritage Elementary will instead vote at the Greenacres Community Center at 501 Swain Blvd. And voters in precincts 2218 and 3088 who usually vote at Tradewinds Middle School will instead vote at the American Polish Club at 4725 Lake Worth Road.

In Highland Beach, voters in precincts 4128, 4129 and 4156 who usually vote at St. Lucy Catholic Church will instead vote at the Highland Beach Library, 3618 S. Ocean Blvd.

In these two cities, the polling location changes are permanent:

In Lake Worth, voters in precincts 3066 and 7164 will no longer vote at the Church by the Glades. Precinct 3066 voters will vote at Our Savior Lutheran Church at 1616 Lake Ave. Precinct 7164 voters will vote at the Osborne Community Center, 1699 Wingfield St.

In Boca Raton, Precinct 4160 voters will move from the Unitarian Fellowship building to the First Baptist Church at 2350 Yamato Road.

Affected voters in these cities have been notified of the changes by mail.
