  •  First, this kind of crap (18+ / 0-)

    was pulled in MD during the Governor's race -- targeted African Americans mainly -- told them not to bother voting because Malloy (D) was already over the top.  

    The clowns that pulled this are serving federal prison terms.

    What Flake's people are doing is the same thing, even though a different insidious message.

    I have a question, though.  In CT, everyone goes to the same polling place in your area -- REpublicans and Democrats.  Does Arizona have different polling places for Republicans than Democrats?  That's odd -- and that's what Flake suggested.

    •  I think you're misunderstanding (9+ / 0-)

      Flake's people were suggesting that the robocall voting reminders would have gone out only to Republicans -- the list they're working off. Of course, polls aren't split by party. There would be no reason to make these types of calls to Democrats...unless the purpose was to deceive.

      BTW, Maryland's governor is O'Malley -- and the dirty tricks started before that election. In the prior election, there were calls claiming Democrats should vote on Wednesday.

      Basically, Republican operatives are despicable human beings.

      who would then "handle" the ballots?

      I never heard of a Church used as a Government run polling location - seems like a major conflict to me right away.

      If not us ... who? If not here ... where? If not now ... when?

        quite frequently.  Depends on the precinct, and what facilities large enough to accommodate the polling place exist there.  It does bother me, though.

      and I've lived in Arizona for the better part of 34 years.  Everyone in the precinct votes in the same place, regardless of party.
