Several Walker County voting precincts were consolidated by a unanimous vote of the Walker County Election Board on Friday. Opposition from the areas affected was wide-spread, but the election board said the move would save the county $15,000 to consolidate the precincts.
Daughtery Gap Precinct in the Cloudland community in Walker County on Lookout Mtn. will be consolidated with the Lookout Mountain Precinct. Some residents will have to drive over 20 miles to cast their ballots. Also, West Armuchee and East Armuchee have been consolidated into the Armuchee Precinct by the Walker County Election Board.
