Holy Life Tabernacle to become vote center

Posted: Wednesday, Aug 13th, 2014

• Some still want polling place closer to campus

BROOKINGS – Brookings County commissioners on Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution to add Holy Life Tabernacle as a fourth vote center in Brookings. The church is on South Main Avenue.

The resolution puts an end to a search that was initially sparked in early May, when Courtland McCranie, Students’ Association vice president at South Dakota State University, requested commissioners establish a vote center on or near campus.

Other vote centers used in Brookings have been the Swiftel Center, the Brookings Activity Center and Bethel Baptist Church.

But this week’s vote in favor of adding Holy Life Tabernacle to the list wasn’t without its critics.
