Friday letters: Council should delay referendum

July 18, 2014

— Lexington County Council has placed an additional nine pages on the November general election ballot. This will result in long lines, confused voters and a poor turnout because voters do not like long waits — not to mention the verbal abuse the poll workers will receive.

The council voted to place the capital improvement sales tax on the ballot, and it can vote to take it off and have it at a less critical time. Not only could there be a voter revolt, but there could also be a poll worker revolt resulting in additional problems in November.

Lexington County voters need to contact their council member and ask, beg and plead for relief at the polls in November.
