GRAND BAY, Ala. (WPMI) Most of the time, polling sites are packed and it's tough to get in. But not at one polling place. In fact, one of them had more workers Tuesday then actual voters.
Janet Oglesby was all ready for a day of greeting and campaigning. She had her signs and everything. But when she got to the polls in Mt. Vernon.
"I came to the poll and found out there were two people registered," she exclaimed, "and I wasn't one of them!"
There are only two registered voters able to vote in Tuesday's election at the precinct in Grand Bay.
Every time there's a new census count, voting districts can change according to the population. So after the 2010 census, lawmakers in Montgomery redrew some of the lines.
At the polling place at Friendship Baptist Church in Grand Bay, that means residents of District 34 and only two residents of 35 vote at that location.
But Tuesday's special election was for Senate District 35 only. So four campaign workers had to show up to make sure two voters could cast their ballots.
According to the District 35 Senate map, the two people who should be eligible to vote at Friendship Baptist Church in Grand Bay live along a short road off Highway 188 called Meadow Lark Road.
Local 15 knocked on a few doors. We either found no one at home, no one living at that address, or no one able to speak English.
Could this happen again? Probably not.
Election officials say law makers have a new census, and are about to weave new boundary before the 2014 campaigns.
