Precinct voting locations announced

The Ripley and Franklin county clerks have named the precinct polling places for the Tuesday, May 6, primary.

“In an effort to provide more efficient and cost-effective voting,” four Batesville area precincts have been consolidated into two, said Ripley County Clerk Mary Ann McCoy. No other Ripley County precincts have been changed.

Laughery Ward 3 Precinct 1 and Laughery Ward 3 Precinct 2 have been combined into one, called Laughery 3-1. Voters will continue to cast ballots at the Batesville Memorial Public Library.

Likewise, Laughery Ward 1 Precinct 1 and Laughery Ward 1 Precinct 2 have merged into another, Laughery 1-1. Residents of those areas will still vote at the Batesville Knights of Columbus Hall.

In Franklin County, the Batesville precinct location has changed from Batesville High School to Church on Fire Ministries.
