TUPELO, Miss. (AP) — A county in north Mississippi is moving some voting precincts before the 2020 elections.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports the changes are being made in Lee County.

The county’s busiest precinct is now at Bissell Baptist Church, where parking is inadequate. It will be moved to the Tupelo Furniture Market, which has more space.

The Belden Fire Station precinct will be moved to Belden Baptist Church.

The new precincts will be used for the first time in January, when the Lee County School District has a bond election. Federal primaries are in March, and the general election is in November.
