  •  Thank you Congressman Miller (7+ / 0-)

    As someone who lives in one of those 15 states, was a polling worker I can't begin to tell you the problems that we had.  From lack of supplies (in my ED we had something like 10 privacy booths but only 2 of them had pens and pollworkers were given a plastic bag with only 3 pens inside for us to us at our table).  Wait at my table was about an hour but I was still yelled at, cursed and threatened.  I can't tell you how many people said "well I registered last week" thinking that they would still be able to vote!  The Board of Elections is given as patronage jobs and these idiots don't know which end is up.  There's more but I don't want to go into it because I just get mad at how poll workers are treated and how the B of E treats both poll workers and voters.
