37. Interesting tid-bit for follow-up by legal minded soldiers...
Edited on Wed Dec-29-04 07:33 PM by higher class
"The state has become an emblem of continuing ailments in the nation's electoral process, because of Election Day events like seven-hour lines that drove voters away from the polls, malfunctioning machines, poorly trained poll workers who directed people to the wrong polling places and uneven policies about the use of provisional ballots, which were given to voters whose registration was contested."
This was a paragraph in the one of the respsonses from the NYT. The phrase that caught my eye is this -

"...poorly trained poll workers who directed people to the wrong polling places..."

Has anyone reported on this - would it not be possible to interview these poll workers to ask if they were aware that they had given out wrong information and whether they agree that they gave out wrong information and how they discovered it and when and who gave them the wrong information - names, date, places. Follow it up the heirarchy?

I call these mistakes possible intentional bigotry and theft. The statement about mistakes should be investigated.
