LETTER: Sirdar voter flummoxed

Reader Ruth Dimion: "Why in the world was our voting station moved to Boswell Memorial Hall?"

Why in the world was our voting station moved to Boswell Memorial Hall? We do not live anywhere near Boswell, and seldom head that way. We have always, in the last eight years of residence, voted at Wynndel Community Hall.

Wynndel is only 14 km, whereas Boswell is 24 km. I am beginning to think the green movement (emissions, emissions etc.) is just a load off the back end of a cow!

This is and was a very, very irritating situation, and Wynndel voting station would not take a sworn statement so we could vote there. If politicians want us to get out and vote, they should quit fiddling with the system.
