Martinsville Considers Merging Precincts

If Piedmont Community Services buys the old West End Elementary School Building, the City will likely combine Precinct 1 that is housed there with Precinct 6 at the Albert Harris High School. The city will hold a meeting at 7 PM Thursday at Albert Harris to discuss the possibility. One wonders the logic of having precincts at Martinsville Middle School and the Virginia Museum of Natural History. Because the museum is the replacement location for the old Joseph Martinsville Elementary School, there are voters who reside closer to the museum than they do the Middle School, but are assigned to vote at the Middle School, and vice versa. (PCS) to use the former housing office building on the city’s west side could result in two voting precincts being consolidated.
