The North Collins Town Board voted Wednesday night to consolidate two voting districts.
The changes affect 500 residents who currently vote in District 3 at Lawtons Fire Hall and District 4 at North Collins Senior Center. Residents who had voted at the Lawtons Fire Hall now will vote at the North Collins Senior Center.
Officials said the move is to save money and will mean the town won't have to buy a new voting machine for Lawtons Fire Hall. The board acted quickly to meet the state's deadline next Thursday for consolidating voting districts.
