STAUNTON -- Your election precinct may be in a new location come election time.
Some polling places in the Valley may get moved away from schools. Changes could happen as early as this November.
The Staunton City Registrar and electoral board recommended the city to move "Ward 4" for voters. The current polls are held at Robert E. Lee High School and could move to the Seventh Day Adventisit Church.
One of the reasons is school safety, traffic and the lack of parking.
Staunton General Registrar Amanda Dimeo said it's more than an issue of school safety.
"It makes it really challenging for the election officials to hear when people go to check in or to know who has been checked in when you have a group of students walks through to an assembly or people in and out for sporting events, noise from the gym in the evenings when there are games and things like that," said Dimeo.
Most schools leave their doors unlocked during election day.
The vote to move the polls could happen as soon as the next city council meeting on April 25th.
