Notice to Spring Place voters - your precinct has not moved, it is in the same building where it has been for several years.  The building that was once the Spring Place United Methodist Church is now owned by the Salvation Army, as the sign indicates.  You will enter the building by the front doors and will be voting in what was once the sanctuary.
