not fair election will have very low turn out
I am appaled at what I am hearing in the small tiwn of Howey in the Hills. Scheduled to have a apecial election the 14th of April over removing a councilman who cant vote on anytging becayse there are no meetings.The head of the rexall committee work8ng with Alan Hayes, or writing to him telling him that because the town is small wveryone will be ok. Are you kidding me... States postpone a peimary and you want to hild a apecial recall election. That is not just irresponsible it is sickening that reaidents whi claim to care so much about there community will do anything to force a vote deapite pitting lives at risk. Shameful
POLLS ARE CLOSED? YES?!!! PLEASE UPDATE YOUR WEBSITE AND FACEBOOK PAGE. PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR CONFIRMED INFORMATION. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR EXTRA EFFORTS.
Will you be posting instructions on how we can obtain ballots now that the polls are closed?
I look forward to working at the polls. Now where do I go to get to your office to deliver my absentee ballot. A map of the building and entry doors would help. Thanks.
What are your hours tomorrow??
It is illegal, unconscionable and immoral for our Lake County Supervisor of Elections, Alan Hays, to refuse to abide by U.S. Federal Law requiring all ballots and voter information materials be printed in Spanish.
