Leon County Elections Office Has a New Home

By  | 

The Leon County Supervisor of Election’s Office is calling a new building home after making way for more courtrooms in the old place at the Leon County Courthouse.

Elections workers spent their holiday moving the office across the street to the former Bank of America building.

The elections supervisor says that was the only way to do it without disturbing the public.

The move is just one adjustment the elections office is facing in the new year.

Ion Sancho, Leon County Supervisor of Elections, says, "The statewide database goes into affect, we're required to have new technology for individuals with disabilities; we have a hotly contested gubernatorial and senatorial election in 2006."

Sancho says he will continue to hold early voting in the courthouse rotunda because there is no room at the new building.

The elections office will reopen to the public January 3.
