16. Just a few points. There were no inner-city precincts closed or boundaries
changed. The cities of Hilliard, Reynoldsburg, Westerville and Grove city councils took it upon themselves to redraw the ward outlines which then required a compensative change in precinct boundaries. If you know Columbus, these are by no means inner-city areas.

The only other change was one that started about 4 years ago when we (the poll workers) were required to fill out a questionnaire about the physical aspects of our polling place. They wanted to know about curb height, handicap parking, threshold height and the likes. It all had to do will handicap accessibility. I do not know if any polling places were moves as a result of this, but it is a possibility.
