Reinstate the Belle Morris Elementary School voting location

      Knoxville, TN

The excuse given for closing Belle Morris Elementary School as a voting location (handicapped access) is not accurate. The closure could confuse, inconvenience and discourage those who traditionally vote at that location in November. In addition, tripling the number of November voters at Larry Cox Rec/Senior Center will cause congestion and confusion. Furthermore, this decision was made without community consultation. Finally, the decision smacks of partisanship when you close the home precinct of one candidate in a hotly contested State House race. The Knox County Election Commission must reverse this awful decision.
