You have articualted an issue quite well.<quoted text>
I addressed your point. Your point (so it seems) is that polls closing early and not having accommodations for the elderly mostly or only affected Democrat voters. I say if anything, it's quite the opposite. Republicans are more likely to vote later since most of them have jobs compared to the non-working social program sucking Democrats who can vote anytime they desire.
What I would really like to see is your information to these claims. I want to know how many potential Democrat voters were turned away because they didn't accommodate the elderly.
Every single election, there are problems. You can't have millions of people voting without problems. For instance: a few years ago, I went to my polling place to vote. As usual, I go just before closing because by then, the place is empty. But that one election, I was greeted with a sign that stated the voting booths were moved to another location. This is because there was a teachers strike, and the UNION morons who set up the voting tables wouldn't enter the school. I didn't get to vote that election. I made no big deal about it because as I stated, no election goes without problems.
Did I call the papers and news organizations claiming there was a conspiracy of some kind? No. Because as I stated, elections come with problems. Democrats on the other hand would make all sorts of claims. They look for these problems and say that it's a conspiracy of some kind, even though all places of voting have equal Democrat and Republican workers.
I am a poll official and we stay OPEN past closing time ONLY if there are folks in line AT THE CLOSING time and you are correct, they tend to be Republicans and small business owners that show up at the end.
This last election someone complained that I turned someone away without a valid ID. This was a lie. The fella I talked to asked if a passport was OK and I said yes. He did not have it with him so I explained that he could vote with a Provisional Ballet. This entails them going to the registrar's office later with a valid ID and his vote gets counted. This fella became irate and left never to be seen again. His Jamacian accent seemed odd as well. Yet, we had NO complaints from elderly or handicapped folks as we make the voting process painless as possible. We offer curbside voting at the polls but DO NOT go to the homes to accomodate elderly and handicapped voters.
