County considers whether to close 10 voting precincts

by: Winston Jones/ Times-Georgian

Carroll County election officials are considering cutting costs by closing 10 voting sites and consolidating them into other nearby precincts.

Elections Supervisor Becky Deese said the move could save the county more than $1,000 per precinct each election. She said no action will be taken until after the Nov. 8 elections.

“Precincts in close proximity to others will be easiest to consolidate,” Deese said Tuesday. “We have 30 precincts in the county and that’s too many for a county this size.”
