Some state voters may not cast their ballots at their usual polling places. Instead, those voters in some North Central West Virginia counties may report to temporary polling places as a result of Superstorm Sandy.

Secretary of State Natalie Tennant on Nov. 5 announced changes in polling locations in Lewis, Preston, Randolph, Tucker and Upshur counties. Those counties saw blizzard-like conditions created by Sandy, a hurricane that collided with a winter storm and caused widespread power outages, flooding and snowfall in West Virginia's mountainous areas.

Changes to polling locations are necessary because of emergency conditions, according to a posting on the secretary of state's website. Voting locations also are subject to change. Information is available at www.wvsos.com.
