Subject: RE: [election-services] Fw: VIP/EML CONVERGENCE?

Rich -
I would agree that there are locales where that happens -- the polling locations have set hours/days but an individual would still be in a precinct (the precinct determines what contests are contained on the individual's ballot).
In Texas there are places where early voting is done at regional locations and anyone can go to any location.  They are still assigned to a precinct, it is just that all precincts can go to all early voting locations.  On election day the polling locations become localized and individuals are routed to their local polling place that handles one precinct (or a small number of precincts).
Polling locations actually change frequently (a church or social hall is under repair and they move to a different facility for the current election).  Precincts usually change only when redistricting or such takes place.

Peter and John,

There is the case where polling places can change over time in an election.  For example, voters may be directed to centralized polling places during early voting.  At some point, early voting ends and election day--the final day of voting--arrives.  On election day, voters may be directed to their neighborhood polling places, which are different than the centralized polling places.
