CHEERS - To reducing polling locations. The Gloversville Enlarged School District is considering reducing the number of district polling places utilized during budget votes and school board elections. There are currently six polling locations and it is being suggested this be scaled back to two. With less than 750 votes cast in the May 2013 budget vote, it is quite clear the apathy in voter turnout can be handled in two area locations within the district. The best thing that could happen is that turnouts for school elections skyrocket in the years to come and the need would arise to go back to numerous polling places! For now, the district should go with two polling places.
