He reports the decision of the Warrensburg Central School District not to allow the use of one of its schools for a primary election in April. This, says Tingley, is because board members thought it would be "too dangerous":
Of the seven members on the school board, not one even cleared their throat to say this is all just a bit silly.
Voting at local schools and firehouses is a tradition that goes back generations. I can't remember the last time I did not vote in a school. And the greatest calamity I can ever recall was complaints over long lines in Lake Luzerne one year.Once we would have laughed at America over a report like this. But if such a decision has not already been made somewhere in Britain, I am sure it soon will be.
The good news, as a footnote to the Free-range Kids post says, is that the Warrensburg decision has now been reversed.
