There are 28,992 polling stations in the country. These stations are set up to provide a venue for voters to go vote on election day. Voters are assigned to their designated polling stations permanently.
The adage “Where you register is where you vote” resulted from this principle of localized polling.
You can only vote at your residence precinct’s assigned polling station. If you go to a different polling place, your name will not appear on the roster and you might not be allowed to vote.
