COLUMBIA — Voters in Boone County's 24th and 34th voting precincts who usually vote at the American Legion off Route WW will be assigned to different polling places for Tuesday's election.

The change is necessary because bridge construction has closed a section of Route WW. In a news release, Boone County Clerk Wendy Noren said about 1,400 voters who live east of the bridge will be affected. They were sent mail and e-mail notices Monday, she said.

Voters who did not receive a reassignment notice or sample ballot need to make sure they are registered by election day, April 5. Poll assignments and addresses can be verified on the Boone County Clerk website or by calling 886-4375.
