County needs more than one early voting site

I would like to complain that it is wrong to have only one early voting site open in Johnston County. When more than half the county’s population resides in western Johnston, it is unfair to expect disabled and elderly citizens to trek all the way to Smithfield to exercise their constitutional right. I am one of those citizens.

I hope the Johnston County Board of Elections will rethink this and open an early voting site in Clayton or Cleveland. It is the right thing to do.
