CLEARFIELD – Clearfield County is considering a petition to relocate a polling place in Bigler Township.
At Tuesday’s commissioners’ meeting, it was announced citizens had petitioned for the polling place to be relocated from the township building to the Madera Fire Co.’s social hall.
Chief Clerk Lisa McFadden said Bigler Township has created a police force, and it utilizes part of the township building.
Plus, McFadden said the fire company has more parking available for voters that would outweigh any possible concerns.
Commissioner Mark B. McCracken said because a petition was received, the board was doing its due diligence and would effectuate the change, if no objections were received.
Any citizens with questions or concerns have until July 8 to submit them to the Clearfield County Elections Office.
