Macon-Bibb NAACP president against fewer voting precincts
The Georgia NAACP is against the decision. The group fears eliminating polling locations could make it difficult for some voters to cast their ballots.
“We have to also look at the fact that this would be a great burden on our community to change these precincts,” says Gwendolyn Westbrook, the organization’s Macon-Bibb president. “Some of these precincts are in walking distance to citizens’ homes.”
The meeting starts at 10 a.m. Thursday at the Board of Elections office on Pio Nono Avenue.
