Can someone tell me what is wrong with the people who work at the Metro Government Archives building in Green Hills? Site of the old Green Hills Library up by the mall?
Apparently people are showing up there for early voting, thinking they are at the Green Hills Library. The archives building hasn’t been the Green Hills Library in about 10 years but I guess some folks are slow on the uptake. Furthermore, the real Green Hills Library is not an early voting location this election. I think it was budget cuts or traffic issues or some nonsense, I don’t know.
Anyway, yesterday I stopped by the archives and saw a sign on the door reading “Early Voting At Green Hills Library.” I informed the staff that the library was not an Early Voting Location and was asked, “well, where is it?” I replied that early voting is all over the city, there’s like eight locations. The staffer rolled her eyes. I told her she had to take that sign down because it was incorrect information.
I mean, I’m just a person here, going about her business. It’s not like I work there or anything.
And then she said, I shit you not: “Well, at least they won’t come in here and ask me where it is! Won’t they know at the library?”
Damn. This is the Metro Government Archives staff not wanting to give people information?
Hey, here’s a thought: you’ve got computers in that office. Why not go over to the Davidson County Election Commission website, print out their list of early voting locations, and stick that on the door?
Now how hard was that?
Geeez. It’s hard enough for people to vote as it is, we don’t need to send people on a wild goose chase around the city looking for a place to cast their ballot.
