Areas were not listed for precincts 16-18, nor any judges/alternates appointed for precincts 19-21. Mrs. Ridgeway said Monday she assumed 19, 20 and 21 would be consolidated with other boxes and noted that one of those precincts has only four residents, none of whom are registered to vote.
She also said the location for voting boxes and how they might be consolidated has not yet been determined.
Mrs. Ridgeway was named judge for the central counting station and her daughter Ronnica Ridgeway was named judge for the early voting ballot board.
In other business Friday, the court approved paying Sydaptic $18,300 for repairing an electronic lock on a door in the county jail.
The court also heard County Judge Dean Fowler report on renovation of the courthouse to meet requirements of the Americans With Disabilities act.
He noted that, among other measures, the carpet has been removed, and some pews shortened, in the county courtroom where the commissioners meet.
