Seven polling places will change locations for the upcoming voting season.

Because of the safety and security at a few polling locations used in the past, some Franklin County residents will be voting at a new location moving forward, county officials said.

Locations that will no longer host polling sites are Appanoose Township, South Centropolis Township, Hayes Township, Homewood Township, Peoria Township, Third Precinct and Sixth Precinct.

Officials said a postcard will be mailed to all voters affected by the change with information about their new polling location. Only registered voters whose polling location has changed will receive a postcard.
