UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — On Sept. 22 the Centre County Board of Elections approved the temporary change of polling locations for Precinct 24 and Precinct 44-2 from the HUB-Robeson Center to the Bryce Jordan Center on Penn State's University Park campus. The Board of Elections has partnered with Penn State to make the Bryce Jordan Center a satellite elections office and Election Day poll site for the 2020 general election.
“Since it’s opening in 1996, the Bryce Jordan Center has proudly served our community by bringing top-name performers in entertainment and sports to the Centre Region. We are honored to continue to serve the community by opening our doors to voters this election,” said General Manager Al Karosas. “The scale and design of the Bryce Jordan Center, as well as the many updates made to address COVID concerns, allow us to easily accommodate proper spatial distancing, provide frequent access to hand sanitizer stations, and offer convenient parking to voters.”
“The Centre County Board of Commissioners and Board of Elections are grateful that the University is expanding access to the ballot box and providing a safe method for voters to make their voices heard,” said Centre County Commissioner Michael Pipe. “Utilizing the Bryce Jordan Center as both a satellite elections office and a polling location provides more options for voters to get involved in our democratic process.”
Voters registered in Centre County can have their completed application for mail-in or absentee ballot processed in-person at the Bryce Jordan Center ticket office. The scheduled dates of the satellite elections office are Oct. 7-10, Oct. 14-17, and Oct. 21-24. For additional information, visit https://centrecountyvotes.com/votingcenter/.
