Are Marion County Democrats Trying To Supress Republican Vote?
Marion County Republicans are crying foul over last-minute changes in the polling locations for ten Republican-leaning precincts. While AI thought polling locations were decided by the Marion County Clerk's office, according to Marion Co. Republicans, the mayor's office is responsible for leasing the space for the polling locations. The Marion Co. GOP further charges that no efforts were made to notify voters in the affected precincts of the last-minute changes. I know that my polling location has never changed in the 16 years I've lived in Indianapolis. I would be pretty upset if I showed up at the regular location and learned it was no longer the polling site. Do Democrats hope to frustrate Republican voters to discourage them from voting in Tuesday's election?
