Electoral board concerned about decision

The Carroll County School Board recently decided to hold school on Election Day.
It has been a longstanding tradition in Carroll County that schools be closed on Election Day.
The Carroll County Electoral Board has concerns regarding this change of operations.
In an effort to maintain the high standards that citizens of Carroll County have become accustomed to, the electoral board has met with, and is working closely with, the school system to address concerns they have.
The board assures those affected by the decision will continue to have the same positive experience as before at their polling location.
The electoral board encourages citizens to register and vote. Questions can be directed to the general registrar’s office by calling (276) 730-3035, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-through Friday.
Anyone interested in ensuring the integrity of the vote by becoming officers of election should contact the registrar’s office.
