The Plumline: Fishy Ballot In Cambridge?
Fishy Ballot In Cambridge?
Note to readers: Please let me know what youre seeing in the field today in Massachusetts.

A software engineer in Cambridge tells he was handed a fishy ballot at the polling station in a local firehouse it already had the bubble next to Scott Browns name filled in. But doesnt think it likely that it was fraud.

Scott Browns bubble was already filled in, the software engineer, Aaron Kemp, 28, tells me by phone. I handed it back to them and asked, `Can I have a clean ballot, please?

The workers at the polling place in the Lexington Avenue Firehouse were very surprised, Kemp says, adding that he asked them to look through the other ballots to see if any others had a bubble filled in. They looked through and they didnt see any other ones, he says.

Kemp says the area is very Democratic, and he worries that other voters might get a similar ballot without noticing, fill in Martha Coakleys name, and submit a ballot with two names filled in, rendering it ineligible. But he says he thinks it was more likely a foul up than fraud. And, obviously, this is only one example. /
