“It's not done with malice. It's just we don't have any money. What do you do?"

Lewis County, Ky., Clerk Leslie Collier, regarding the fact that the 500-square-mile county that serves 13,000 people will have only four centralized polling sites for the general election that ends Tuesday. The county allots just $50,000 annually. Lewis County isn’t the only Kentucky county that has had to reduce polling locations; in this year’s race, 64 of the state’s 120 counties have reduced their polling locations to just a few centralized voting centers. Voting rights activists are concerned that consolidating voting locations could disenfranchise voters. (NPR — Nov. 5, 2023)
