ALACHUA COUNTY — The Alachua County Supervisor of Election is announcing polling place changes for the upcoming 2020 Primary Election.
 
Precinct 23
The polling location for Precinct 23 is the Wyndham Garden Gainesville, which is located at 2900 SW 13th Street, Gainesville. The Wyndham Garden Gainesville is also the permanent polling place for Precinct 59, so the location will serve voters from both precincts (23 and 59).
 
Previously, City College served as Precinct 23's polling place. Our office expects to return to City College for the 2020 General Election.
 
Precinct 25
The polling location for Precinct 25 is the Santa Fe College Blount Center, which is located at 401 NW Sixth Street, Gainesville.
 
Previously, the Santa Fe College Center for Innovation and Economic Development served as Precinct 25's polling place. That building is now under construction.
 
Precinct 39
The polling location for Precinct 39 is the Hilton University of Florida Conference Center, which is located at 1714 SW 34th Street, Gainesville.
 
Previously, the Hilton Garden Inn served as Precinct 39's polling place. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, that building is closed.
 
Precinct 52
The polling location for Precinct 52 is the Freedom Community Center at Kanapaha Park, which is located at 7340 SW 41st Place, Gainesville. The Freedom Community Center at Kanapaha Park is also the permanent polling place for Precinct 48, so the location will serve voters from both precincts (48 and 52).
 
Previously, the Disabled American Veterans State Headquarters served as Precinct 52's polling place. The move was made because the Disabled American Veterans State Headquarters does not have adequate space.
 
Precinct 61
The polling location for Precinct 61 is the Millhopper Branch Library, which is located at 3145 NW 43rd Street, Gainesville.
 
Previously, The Atrium, a senior living community, served as Precinct 61's polling place. The move was made because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Voters must vote in the polling place to which they are assigned on Election Day, which is Aug. 18. During early voting, which will run from Aug. 3 through Aug. 15, voters may use any one of the six Alachua County early voting sites.
