I voted early at the Lowndes County Board of Elections. Tuesday November 8th precincts will be open for Election Day 2016.
The County Commission staff didn’t manage to get its referendum in on time about changing Tax Commissioners from elected to appointed, so everybody had to vote twice. They had a second set of voting machines set up in the back office, with double election officials, double poll watchers, and the same will be required at all precincts Tuesday, so double the cost to the Lowndes County taxpayers for this whole election.
Investigative reporting costs money, for open records requests, copying, web hosting, gasoline, and cameras, and with sufficient funds we can pay students to do further research. You can donate to LAKE today!
