Watauga County Board of Elections majority, Luke Eggers and Bill Aceto, continue to treat elections office Director Jane Anne Hodges like a doorstop.
In an article published last night in the Winston-Salem Journal, it comes to light that 27-year veteran Hodges recommended that Eggers and Aceto add a discussion to Wednesday's meeting agenda of the potential election-day problems at the Legends building (Boone 2 precinct) ... no back-up power, a flooding problem, and inadequate handicap access. State Board of Elections Executive Director Kim Strach had in fact directed that the local board come up with a backup polling place plan.
No dice, say Eggers and Aceto.
It's not in the script written for them by Luke Eggers' big brother Four, so they're not going to discuss it.
Watauga BOE meets Wednesday, October 2, 5 p.m., in the County Courthouse.
