A few voters at the Waller Road Grange weren’t happy with the idea of no more polling places. And their concerns were all about knowing their ballot would be counted.
Richard Goheen is still hoping popular support will revive the polling stations:
I really want some evidence that my vote is registered. Whether that’s a paper trail or however, I don’t know. To me, there’s a good reason people had to show up in person and show ID that shows they should be voting. And there was a good reason that people saw that their vote was registered.
And Wayne Readel says the end of polling places means the end of his voting activity:
Who can I trust mailing it in? Who’s going to say what happens to it? I don’t even do the touch-screen. I do the paper. That’s how I feel about it, and that’s how I’ve been doing it for 50 years. I’m from the old school.
