Franklin County polling sites being consolidated


Holy Family School poses parking problems but, more importantly, security issues because hundreds of people enter and leave the building throughout the day virtually unmonitored.

And the Malone Adult Center serves as a congregate-meal site for senior citizens and headquarters for Meals on Wheels, programs that are disrupted during an election.

King said that, if it had to, the county could put five districts at St. John Bosco’s, for example, and the others at the Adult Center.
