At the October Lincolnton City Council Meeting, the Lincoln County Board of Elections (BoE) change to the City’s One Stop voting change dominated the Discussion. Mayor Ed Hatley, told the Council that he received a notice that One Stop Voting for City residents would be held at a County owned building at 451 Salem Church Road. He added that One Stop Voting should be held near where it has always been held, near the center of the City. All of the City Council members agreed.

Councilman Marty Eaddy said that it would be an inconvenience to many City residents and particularly business owners, some of who would likely have to close to drive to vote. He also noted that quite a few residents had been walking to the One Stop location but that would be impossible now. Councilman Jim Watson noted that he always believed that “we should make voting in elections easier for our citizens rather than harder.”

Saying that the BoE would likely cite additional costs for having a second site for One Stop voting in the City limits, Mayor Hatley said that the BoE always makes the City pay those costs themselves. He offered, and City Council agreed, that the Council’s meeting room could be offered as an alternate voting location.

They decided to send a letter to the Board of Elections with their offer and stating their concerns.
