Bristol Elks lodge to become a polling place in November

The American Legion polling place is not going to be used this year.
The city's registrars and the secretary of state's office agreed this week to shift the polling place to the Bristol Elks lodge on South Street.
The American Legion was not fully accessible to some handicapped voters because of the steep slope leading from the parking lot to its door on Hooker Court.
The Elks lodge is located at the south end of Main Street in the historic home of clockmaker Chauncy Jerome. It has a large parking lot in its rear and is easily accessible.
