The ongoing construction on four downtown public schools will shuffle several polling places for Tuesday's city of Charleston elections.

The city and county have found other sites nearby and are working to get the word out to minimize confusion, said Joseph Debney, director of the Charleston County Board of Elections and Voter Registration.

The changes include:

Debney said voters in those precincts have been sent new voter registration cards with the updated polling places, and his staff plans to put up large signs on the new and old sites by Election Day.

"We'll try to wait until the day before to put those up because we don't want someone to steal them," he said.
