44. More Election 2008 Stories: Election Judge Who "Helps" Voters Vote
I voted for Obama and if Laura could have voted she too would have adamantly voted for him as well. While I was voting there were judges who displayed their political alliances on their name badge. Well, as I was waiting in line to vote at one of the touch screen machines I noticed that there was a hispanic gentleman who seemed confused and a republican judge "helped" him. I noticed that he was reaching towards the screen to "demonstrate" how to use the machine and at that time I yelled "while I am glad to see you are helping to explain how to use the machine I don't think that a live demonstration means voting on his behalf". I promptly received a stern glance from the judge and as a result two other judges (Democrat) reminded the Rebulican judge that he was not allowed to be near the machines. (no judge was permitted).

My point is, all this happened in a short time (10 minutes), imagine repeated occasions in hundreds (or thousands) of voting sites in the US all day?
