A lot of things have changed in Morgan County since March 2nd, the day an EF 3 tornado tore through the town.

On Tuesday, voters in the city of West Liberty had to deal with a few more changes after one of the main polling locations was destroyed.

"Completely different. We used to vote at the community center, four different precincts. Far more people," said voter Connie Peyton.

That location was destroyed giving this small, but important election a different feel.

"We don't have as many to vote for this time, but still it's a whole different feel than it was before," said Peyton.

It's a change no one thought they would need to be prepared for.

"We had emergency procedures and plans in place in case something like this happened. Didn't expect it to happen, but we were ready to have the election," said Morgan County Clerk Randy Williams.

Williams also says they are also using all new voting equipment after theirs was destroyed.
