Polling stations are expensive to set up and finding people to man them is not always easy. The number of ones that we had here were reduced by we are allowed to vote at any station in town, instead of having assigned stations. Makes it much easier now.Any proof of this as the Trump investigation didn't turn up any.
Removing poling places and increasing the number of people who have to go to one that is further away and you have not got transport. Voter suppression?
