The confusion arises from a voter registration card sent out by Richland County Voter Registration & Elections earlier this year when the county combined Friarsgate and Old Friarsgate locations at E.H. Corley for the June primary. 

Today, some voters arriving at EH Corley were told they needed to vote at a different location -- at Dutch Fork Elementary.
