Hager Hall closes, leaves BOE without voting location

Maryland

Since Hager Hall closed, the Washington County Board of Elections remains without a permanent home for election season.

The board attended a Board of County Commissioners meeting sharing prospective locations that would house the center’s early voting, training and warehouse.

One location in consideration is on Virginia Avenue, formerly known as a “Shop n Save” store in Washington County. The organization also believes 367 E. Franklin Street would be another possible home in time for the 2020 election year.

During the BOCC meeting, County Commissioner Randall Wagner insisted that the county should keep its options open. The election board wanted county commissioners to come to a consensus of meeting with prospective investors and negotiating prices.

According to the Washington County Board of Elections Director Kaye Robucci, the deadline to find a permanent location and alert the state is September.
