7. I was a poll worker in the last election

and I saw it happen at least nine times.

Democrats, in a minority neighborhood, that were FLOORED when they were told that they were registered as Libertarian or NP.

I talked to at least 1o people that were in shock.

I have no way of knowing how many others were tricked this way.
