SUNDIAL - Raleigh County moved a precinct for the upcoming election because of a rock slide that closed parts of Route 3 since late December.

Deputy County Clerk Cecilia Chapman said most of the voters in that precinct lived below the rock slide.  Those residents can now vote at the Raleigh-Boone Technical Center instead of Marsh Fork Elementary. 

The road has been closed to general traffic near Sundial since three large boulders fell on December 27.

Crews are working to stabilize the mountainside.
