Polling place in Arlington (file photo)Arlington election officials are looking to create new precincts, change voting district boundaries and move polling stations for the November election.

Residents near Fashion Centre at Pentagon City and in the Lyon Park neighborhood near Clarendon would get new precincts, according to a proposal the Arlington County Electoral Board and elections director have recommended to the County Board. About a half-dozen other adjustments to boundaries and polling stations also would happen under the election officials’ plan.

The voting district near the Pentagon City mall would come out of the Virginia Highlands Precinct, with a polling station at the new Bartlett apartment building (520 12th Street S.).

The precinct in Lyon Park would form from the Lyon Park Precinct, with a polling station at Garfield Park Apartments (925 N. Garfield Street).

The other proposed precinct and polling station changes are online.

The County Board is scheduled to vote Saturday on whether to hold a public hearing on the revisions in September.
