GOP poll challengers tried to intimidate Genoa voters, clerk says [View all]

Source: Livingston County Press

Republican poll challengers attempted to intimidate voters in each of Genoa Township's 12 voting precincts this month, the township's GOP clerk said.

Township Clerk Polly Skolarus said the Republican challengers did not challenge voters' registration, but transmitted their data electronically to state party officials during the Nov. 6 election.

Skolarus said none of the GOP poll challengers arrived with lists of voters they planned to challenge, as is customary.

"There were a lot of people that were not happy that those people were sitting there. They felt it was an invasion of their privacy," she said."The Republican Party making the decision to put them in every precinct did them no favors. I think it made them enemies," Skolarus added.

Note: THIS is in an area that the township next to the burial place of former Michigan Governor and father of the (R) candidate, George Romney (Brighton, Michigan). It's about as "red" a township as it gets in Michigan. Yet all precincts had voter intimidation republicans on duty, to offend voters going to the polls.
