Letter: Why only one station at advance polling?
File photo.

Dear editor:

It’s about noon on Friday, Oct. 11, and I am just back from advance voting at the NOTL Community Centre.

It was my second attempt. My first try was around 10 a.m.

The queue then was down the hall to get into the room. I left and returned late morning.

It’s a good thing I live close enough to the community centre that I can walk over.

BUT — same situation — the queue was still down the hall and 18 persons long inside the room.

The woman ahead of me gave up and left after about 20 minutes.

The problem? ONE voting booth!

It appears the room could easily accommodate three.

Hopefully the next MP for Niagara Falls riding will read this and remedy with Elections Canada.

Voting should be fun, not painful.
