Our Board of Election has

Our Board of Election has seen fit to limit early voter access to South Side Voters.

The nearest early voting location for South Side voters is Golden Camp Road:
16.80 miles from McBean, GA.
13.25 miles from Blythe GA.
11.76 miles from Hephzibah Ga.
9.25 miles From Goshen Community on Old Waynesboro rd.
7.53 miles from Tobacco Rd Spanish Trace community.

Consider Richmond County only runs about 17 miles in length and you get a quick idea of how far out some are forced to travel to vote early.

It would seem the Board Elections has accidentally disenfranchised a very large number of voters south of Bobby Jones. Plus the official Richmond County cities of, Blythe and Hephzibah.

Everyone knows they can't provide early voting everywhere, but some consideration for the South Sider's is overdue and in order.
