County looking to secure grant funds for voting equipment to bring back voting in Jabez

Last month, the Russell County Fiscal Court voted to approve purchasing voting machines and equipment needed to bring a polling place back to Jabez, beginning with next month’s general election.

At last night’s meeting of the fiscal court, the magistrates voted to approve a resolution that will hopefully provide grant funds to help cover the cost of that voting equipment, namely voting machines and portable restroom facilities.

Jabez has not had a polling location since 2019 and since then, residents voting in-person have had to travel around 20 miles or more to the nearest polling location.
