Two days later, on Wednesday, September 19, the Parkinson Secondary School will be the venue for affected electors in the St. Michael South Central and St. Michael South East constituencies. The next day, Thursday, September 20, at The Alleyne School, constituents in St. Andrew will have the opportunity to hear about the adjustments to their polling districts.

The town hall meetings will continue on Monday, September 24, at the Christ Church Boys? School, for persons in the Christ Church East Central and West Central constituencies. St. Christopher Primary School will be the location for the fifth meeting, which will be held on Wednesday, September 26.
