Voters in the P2W Precinct will no longer vote at Forestview Middle School. Due to safety concerns, ISD 181 asked the City of Baxter to find an alternate location to conduct elections. The City found limited options within the P2W Precinct that would provide adequate accessible space for conducting elections. Statue Statutes allow polling locations to be located within close proximity of the precinct boundary. Lakewood Evangelical Free Church, 6284 Fairview Road, was willing to allow the City to conduct elections in their facility and the facility met all of the requirements to be a polling location. Beginning with the August 14, 2018 Primary Election, voters in the P2W Precinct will now vote at Lakewood Evangelical Free Church.
The remaining polling locations remain unchanged. The other polling locations include: P1W Baxter City Hall, P1E Lord of Life Lutheran Church, and P2E Heritage Church.
