LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Keep it fair for voters


Jacksonville Daily Progress

JACKSONVILLE — We have asked Shannon Cornelius – Elections Administrator of Cherokee County that the early voting on the JISD bond election in November be held at Jacksonville Library rather than on JISD school property in order to be fair to all voters in the school district.

The last bond election was won by the early vote count due to it being held at the school admin. bldg on the Troup Hwy. and many voters did not go out there and vote.

I have asked Travis Clardy to introduce a bill so no early voting can be held on any school property such as in the past Friday night home coming football games, and at different schools at night.

The school district has about 1,000 employees and this is a big advantage already for them to win the bond election.

Let's level the playing field so we are fair to all of the voters.



Thank you,

Rod Carnahan,

Jacksonville
