Once again, if you live in a prescient outside of the Boone city limits, you are being discriminated against. If any of the pools are open hey all should be.

Guy...I don't disagree, but I could live with only some of the polls open..but do they all have to be within a few blocks of each other?

How about one in B Rock, one in the Eastern Part of the County and one in the Western part...PLUS the courthouse?

Of course we know the answer, the highest concentrate of Dems is in the Boone area so that's where the early voting is.

Why should anyone get preferential treatment for voting over anyone else? Why should I have to drive from Beaver Dam to Boone if I want to vote early when a college student can vote in a building he walks by 4 times a day?

They allow this and have the nerve to complain about requiring a voter ID with a picture because they say it would be unfair. This is hypocrisy at its fullest extent.

New Guy, do you live within a few blocks or a few minutes drive from a early voting site?

I agree with guy faulkes, the one-stop locations are discriminatory against the rural areas. We need to petition the board of elections for change. Better yet, maybe we need a new board of elections.
