Precinct Consolidations Proposal

COLUMBUS, GA (WXTX) – Muscogee County is considering a plan to consolidate voting precincts. It hopes to consolidate 46 precincts into 28.

City leaders say the move will create more locations to advance vote.  We're told more and more voters have been casting their ballots before election day.

 In addition, express polls will be put in place to speed up the voting process.

The Muscogee Board of Elections and Registration will finalize the plan during a regularly scheduled board meeting on Thursday, February 4th.

 Anyone with objections can mail their correspondence to Elections and Registration, P.O. Box 1340, Columbus, Georgia  31901, call 706-653-4392 or  send an email to nboren@columbusga.org.
