Williamstown moves voting location

Transitions from elementary school to high school

WILLIAMSTOWN — Williamstown City Council members want to remind residents that early voting will begin on June 2 for county sites.

The Williamstown site was originally going to be Williamstown Elementary, but had to be changed to the high school as preparations have already begun to start moving to the new elementary school, according to council member Marty Seufer.

The location will be open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on that Saturday. On Election Day, it will be open 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

According to Seufer, each voting station within Wood County is also equipped with the Williamstown ballot, so residents don’t have to vote just at Williamstown High School.

According to Mayor Jean Ford, the city is hoping to have 20 voting machines in the high school gymnasium for people to use while maintaining social distances.

Other business conducted at Tuesday’s council meeting:

The council is reviewing the Wood County Emergency Operation Plan. The plan is county wide, and it covers what actions should be taken in case of any emergency.

“Things happen and I am thankful for those who think ahead and help to put an action plan in place,” said Seufer.

The next council meeting will be on June 2. It will be livestreamed for the public, and a link can be found on the city website.
