Polling place changed after church fire

10 News will have live election results tonight on WTSP.com.

St. Petersburg, Florida -- Polling crews camped outside of the Vietnamese Evangelical Church Tuesday morning, directing voters to a new polling location.

A fire destroyed the North St. Pete church forcing voters to cast their ballot at Roberts Recreation Center.

The rec center took on more than 1,500 extra registered voters, but those at the polls this morning said that the transition was seamless.

"It was an easy 1, 2, 3, step process," explained a voter.

The St. Pete Supervisor of Elections Office tells 10 News that the voting machines and workers initially scheduled for the church were transferred over to the rec center in order to make the voting process easier.

If you are registered to vote and your polling precinct is at Vietnamese Evangelical Church you will now vote at Roberts Recreation Center 1246 50th Avenue North.
