Irma Relief Forces Plant City Poll Relocations

Plant City, Fla. (970 WFLA) - Heavy traffic to Plant City Stadium for "Food for Florida" has forced elections officials to move two polling places for Tuesday's House District 58 Special Primary election. 

Below is a news release from Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Craig Latimer's office: 

Precinct 753 voters (who were originally assigned to vote at Plant City Recreation and Parks due to a storm-related closure of their polling place at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center) will instead be voting at the Bruton Memorial Library (302 McClendon St., Plant City, FL).

Precinct 763 voters who were assigned to Hope Lutheran Church will instead be voting at Faith Temple Assembly of God (4240 N Frontage Rd.).

The elections office learned today that extremely long lines for Food for Florida benefits at the Plant City Stadium have made sites on Park Road inaccessible for voting.  There are approximately 800 eligible voters affected by these changes.

If voters believe they will be unable to get to their polling place tomorrow, they can go to any of the Supervisor of Elections Offices today (until 5 p.m.) or Tuesday (7 a.m. - 7 p.m.) and have a ballot printed for them over the counter.

Florida law requires all Election Day voters to vote in their assigned polling places. Voters in four other precincts were notified by mail of temporary polling place changes for this election prior to today. The list of all polling place changes is as follows:

*  Precinct 355 is voting at the Unitarian Universalist Church

*  Precinct 631 is voting in the Thonotosassa Branch Library

*  Precincts 657 and 662 are voting at St. Catherine's Episcopal Church

*  Precinct 753 is voting at Bruton Memorial Library

*  Precinct 763 is voting at Faith Temple Assembly of God

Voters should call (813) 744-5900 or visit and click on Election Day Voting if they are unsure of their precinct or polling place.
