Godwin precinct name changed
© Prince William Times / Jul. 23, 2016Prince William County election precincts are moving here, there and everywhere or so it seems.
The Prince William Board of County Supervisors voted 6-0 on July 12 to change the name of the Godwin Precinct to the Hampton Precinct.
They also voted to move the location of the Central Absentee Precinct from the Central Community Library to Old Manassas Courthouse.
The Prince William County Office of Elections requested that the Godwin Precinct be changed to match the name change of Godwin Middle School, where the polling place is located, to Hampton Middle School.
The request to move the CAP to Old Manassas Courthouse came after the Office of Elections said taking ballot trays, supplies, and other documents to the library on Election Day is inconvenient.
Chairman at-Large Corey Stewart and Woodbridge Supervisor Frank Principi were absent from the meeting. No citizen spoke at either public hearing.
