PLEASANT GROVE, Ky. (WAVE) — Dozens of voters in Bullitt County had their polling place moved just an hour and a half before the polls closed.

WAVE reports that a coding issue prompted a public notice at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. The move affected 76 voters in Bullitt County.

According to the station,voters who live in the Pleasant Grove community on the following four roads were “improperly coded” into Mt. Washington: Alpar Lane, Pare Court, Pleasant View Court and Beagle Run.

The coding issue was revealed by the county’s Board of Elections Chairman, Kevin Mooney, who said a Circuit Court order caused the change.

Any registered voter who lives on those four roads should go to Pleasant Grove Elementary School, located at 6415 KY-44 in Mt. Washington to vote.

They were originally told to go to Eastside Middle School — but should not go there to vote. One voter reached out to WAVE 3 News saying he voted at 3 p.m. and was made aware of the change at that time.

No other areas of the county were affected by the coding error.

Polls close in Kentucky at 6 p.m. local time.

Voters with questions can call Mooney at his office: 502-543-2513.
