(CTN News) – The city of Covington has released voting guidelines for its residents who plan on voting on Tuesday.
Covington has fewer voting locations than in previous years, and many of the previous locations have changed. On Election Day, Nov. 8, each voter has an assigned polling location. It is possible to vote at other locations, however.
Ken Smith, Covington City Manager, said voters need to be aware of the changes and plan ahead. Don’t expect to do things the same way you always have.”
