We will not know until after the election the effect of closing polling places in 14 precincts and asking those voters to come to the convention center in Danville.
Whether you favor the plan or don't, to rebel by refusing to vote - which is the stated intention of some - is not the right course. It is one thing to be "disenfranchised," quite another to be an unwilling participant.
Still, there is a compromise that could ease some of the tension. As suggested in a letter on this page from one candidate, the addition of one voting place in the east end of the county would go a long way.
Leaving precincts in the western end of the county at Perryville and Junction City makes sense. Both are incorporated entities with elections specific to their jurisdictions. A precinct in Parksville, and the possibility that one in Mitchellsburg will be reconsidered, can only be attributed to convenience, and that raises an issue of fairness for those living east of Danville.
