Voters urged to double check polling places

— Residents eligible to vote in the upcoming primary — or planning to vote in November's general election, for that matter — are advised to double check their polling place.

Due to Albany County's recent redrawing of legislative district boundaries, some residents might find themselves assigned a different polling place than they are accustomed to. Redistricting generally only comes along once a decade, when the U.S. Census is conducted.

Voters can check their polling place in several ways. The Board of Elections mails out reminders every election, and these yellow postcards list the voter's correct polling place.

Those who are still unsure or don't have the card can contact the Board of Elections at 487-5060 or visit albanycounty.com/voteinfo where there is a tool to look up polling places by address.

The primary election is on Sept. 13, and the general election is on Nov. 8.
