Board votes to reduce number of polling places from 24 to eight

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — “My greatest concern ... we say people don’t come out to vote,” Dobbs said. “I’m hopeful people do come out. When we look at the last election and what happened with people in Virginia standing in line for hours to vote, I hope we have that problem one day. There hasn’t been much turnout, but those who did might look at this and may not go in the future.”

After the final vote confirmed the polling place reduction, King expressed to the board it should consider having district school buses traveling around on election days to provide transportation to anyone looking to vote without means of normal transportation.

Petrozzi also commented, suggesting the board also look into promoting absentee ballots, which residents can complete without physically visiting their polling site.

For complete information about the new polling locations, residents are encouraged to visit the district’s website at www.nfschools.net or call district clerk Ruthel Dumas at 286-4211.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
