Citizens should be able to vote close to home

Our family has lived in our home almost 25 years and voted in elections two-tenths of a mile away. We have been "redistricted" and now have to drive three miles to vote. That's right - three miles one way. No other notification but one week before, when our new voter registration cards arrived in the mail. When contacting the town clerk's office about it, officials said they were not even notified by the county Board of Elections. Nice move.
It is no wonder the populace of this country is totally disappointed in elected officials who do nothing but pander to themselves. It is terrible what they are doing to the country and its citizens.
