GREENE COUNTY, Mo. (KY3/KSPR) - Missourians will head to the polls Tuesday morning to consider several tax issues and local city races. In Greene County, there are several polling location changes.

One of the permanent location changes is for voters who used to vote at Vatterott College. Those voters will now go to Kickapoo High School, located at 3710 South Jefferson Avenue. Another permanent location change is for voters in Strafford. Those who used to vote at the Strafford Senior Center will instead head to the First Baptist Church in Strafford. The First Baptist Church is located at 400 South Madison Avenue. The polling place changes were made due to the previous locations no longer being available.

A small group of voters in the third North Campbell precinct who normally vote at North Point Church are asked to vote at the Kansas Expressway Church of Christ, located at 2540 North Kansas Expressway in Springfield.
