At a monthly meeting held during an election,
the Lowndes County Board of Elections decided to re-open a polling station at a Valdosta State University (VSU) precinct,
which hasn’t happened since 2009.
The next step is for the VSU President to make a decision.
Then, students, step up and staff it, and vote, please!
