Bethesda loses early voting site - and leaders aren't happy about it
The vote came up at last night's Western Montgomery County Citzens Advisory Board meeting in Bethesda. Board member Jordan Cooper recalled early voting turnout being light at the Lawton Center in 2014. Others on the board were concerned at the loss.
Ultimately, the board voted last night to send the Board of Elections a strong letter to "express dismay" at the decision. The WMCCAB is appointed by the County Executive and approved by the County Council, and represents residents, non-profits and businesses.
