As the 2024 election season approaches, some voters are in for a change in Election Day voting locations. Historically, the Election Commission has utilized county school buildings as precinct locations on Election Day. However, with growing concerns about school safety, the Chester County Election Commission voted unanimously to pursue other possible locations.

“It is unfortunate that we have to consider personal safety when selecting polling locations, but that is the world we live in today and ultimately, nothing is more important than the safety of our students,” said Kathy Vest, Chester County Administrator of Elections.

No voting will take place in any Chester County School going forward. On Election Day, voters who have traditionally voted at Jacks Creek Elementary School will now vote at Beech Springs Baptist Church located at 675 State Route 22A. Voters who have voted at Chester County Junior High School will now vote at Christ Community Church located at 638 White Ave. Voters who have been voting at West Chester Elementary School will now vote at Trinity United Methodist Church located at 1374 W. Main St. We certainly appreciate the willingness of these congregations to open their doors to serve the voters of Chester County.

Voters will soon receive new wallet cards that reflect their new Election Day voting location. As always, Early Voting is an option for every registered voter. That will continue to take place at 126 Crook Avenue behind the Chester County Courthouse. Early voting for the March 2024 election will be open from February 14 through February 27, 2024.

If anyone has a question about their voting location, they can feel free to contact the Chester County Election Office at (731) 989-4039.
