Keep Town Hall as a polling site in Ridgeway so more people can vote

Posted 17 February 2023 at 3:30 pm


Closing down the polling site at Town Hall on West Avenue in Ridgeway would be a mistake and would decrease the amount of voters who would come out to vote.

The reality is that there are voters who do not drive or do not have cars. When we are time blocking nearly every portion of our life’s schedule, there are also people who simply cannot squeeze in the extra 10-20 minutes it would take to get back and forth to the firehall location.

Of all the appalling amounts of money our levels of government waste or trivialise (yes, even our local ones), what is $1,750 in the budget in order to ensure more voters come out to exercise an important amendment?
