Kanawha County GOP UNfairly Attacked By the Charleston Gazette

Today's Charleston Gazette contains an editorial blasting the Kanawha County Republican Executive Committee for its refusal to agree to the establishment of costly satellite polling stations for early voting. The editorial implies that voters will only have the choice of voting at the courthouse and fails to mention the fact that voting can be done in convenient precincts on Election Day itself.
The Kanawha County Republicans, I would imagine, are concerned about wasting taxpayer money in these very uncertain times. The Gazette does not even share their side of the story, but accuses them of restricting voting.

Of course the Gazette specializes in these kinds of hatchet jobs. We can counter this unwarranted attack through letters to the editor or comments directly on the editorial's webpage, link included here.
