1. can be a problem and I will be volunter poll watcher here myself

Illinois voting typically goes ok. But with trump stirring up the hornets nest, we gotta be prepared. I am ready to take photos and videos if the need arise

2. Do it the legal way.

It may be too late to sign up. You must register forty days before the election.

5. I will be inside the polling area with a friend outside in his car with a camera to record comings

and goings of any troublemakers.

6. Thanks Muriel...

I can't speak for all precincts but the one where I work is not large by any means. More than two poll watchers would not fit. So now I know I could legally remove them.
