Because of Coronavirus concerns, Precinct 23’s and Precinct 61’s polling places moved
March 12, 2020
Press release from Alachua County Supervisor of Elections
The polling places for Precinct 23 and Precinct 61 have been moved because of concerns surrounding the coronavirus.
The emergency polling location for Precinct 23 is the Wyndham Garden Gainesville, which is located at 2900 SW 13th Street, Gainesville. The Wyndham Garden Gainesville is also the permanent polling place for Precinct 59, so the location will serve voters from both precincts (23 and 59).
Previously, the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge served as Precinct 23’s temporary polling place for this election. The move was made at the request of the facility.
The emergency polling location for Precinct 61 is the Millhopper Branch Library, which is located at 3145 NW 43rd Street, Gainesville.
Previously, The Atrium, a senior living community, served as Precinct 61’s polling place. The move was made at the request of the facility and is only for this election.
Florida Statutes 101.71 provides the Supervisor of Elections the authority to designate alternate polling locations or replace established polling locations under extenuating or emergency circumstances.
Voters must vote in the polling place to which they are assigned on Election Day. During early voting, which will run through March 14, voters may use any one of the six Alachua County early voting sites.
All early voting sites (listed below) are open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.
