    I am an 86 year old man, a lifelong Democrat, living in the town of Davenport in Delaware county. My polling place was moved in 2010 to Davenport Center. It is much too far
    for me to walk to. I would very much like to vote next week. Are there any plans to take seniors without transportation to the polls?
