From one of our associates in the field named Dolores (forwarded to me by Thea Shoemake) we get this report of Obama workers canvassing and electioneering among those standing in line to vote today. To be sure this sort of stuff is illegal within the polling area. All such activities have to be far outside the actual polling place, not just in Ohio, but in all states.
Ok, now I’m officially scared. This afternoon I went to vote early at the Butler County Board of Elections and found a line with an estimated wait of over an hour.
The voting officials suggested coming back at a later time.
I decided to go back tonight and waited a total of 1 1/2 hours before I could actually vote. There were a lot of interesting things going on while everyone was waiting in line…Obama campaigners were going up and down the long lines handing out candy and water bottles (I don’t think this is allowed so very close to the voting area! We were inside the building in line the whole time this was going on!).
There were huge groups of Obama supporters in line in front of me and behind me literally recruiting people while standing in line, to volunteer over the weekend to do door to door canvasing and election day work.
This is the sort of illegal activity that poll watchers are supposed to report. But, the poll workers in Butler County neglected their duty, for sure.
