Voting moved to Eccles Center

by Jay Hamburger OF THE RECORD STAFF

Election officials with Park City will consolidate two polling locations during the municipal balloting later this year, an effort to more easily manage the election and save a little money.

According to Cindy LoPiccolo, who is the city’s elections officer, voting will be held at the following locations:

The Eccles Center lobby at Park City High School. People who live in Prospector, Thaynes Canyon, the Sidewinder neighborhood, Park Meadows and Quarry Mountain will cast ballots at the Eccles Center.

The Marsac Building. People who live in Old Town and Deer Valley will vote at the Marsac Building, which is scheduled to be reopened after renovations before the election.

The people who will vote at the Eccles Center traditionally cast their ballots at either McPolin Elementary School or Treasure Mountain International School.

LoPiccolo said voting was especially disruptive at McPolin, describing that the lobby of the elementary school would become cold as steady streams of voters opened the front doors on their way in and out of the building.

"It impacted McPolin," LoPiccolo said.

She said consolidating the McPolin and Treasure Mountain polling locations could save some money because not as many poll managers will need to be hired.

The decision comes a few months before Parkites will vote in an election with the mayor’s office and two Park City Council seats on the ballot. A primary election is scheduled Sept. 15. Election Day is Nov. 3.

The Marsac Building will return as a polling place after being closed on the busy Election Day 2008. Officials expect the Marsac Building to reopen Aug. 24.
