Polling place a long walk for ASU students
WCNC Charlotte’s Jeremy Markovich hit the actual streets yesterday to see what the contentious decision by Watauga County Board of Elections to condense Boone’s three voting precincts into one will mean for Boone voters.
Appalachian State University students will face 17 minute walk from campus, on roads with no shoulder or sidewalks in places.
The 9,340 voters assigned to the precinct — now the third largest in the state — will be fighting over 28 parking spaces on Election Day, no doubt.
