Confusion on Election Day

There was considerable confusion on election day due to the changing of precincts and polling locations. One common issue concerned Laurelwood residents.  For years, they have been voting at the Flowood Library across Old Fannin Road.  Many showed up again at the library last Tuesday to cast their vote, only to be instructed to go instead to the Flowood YMCA.  Discouraged and already late, some declined their civic duty.  Of 1,101 total registered voters in that precinct, only 321 cast their vote.  

Laurelwood was not alone.  Please consult the new map to determine your polling precinct.

Any other stories of confusion on election day?

Guess they didn't read their mail with the new instructions...
