Oh, they tried to mess with an elderly Viet Nam Vet when he went to cast his vote... [View all]

his machine was "off", as in where he indicated he needed to vote was askew and it would not register because the machine had to be touched "just so". So 4 or 5 people have already voted and he is still standing there, trying to push the right spot on the voting screen, he kept calling over and asking for help.

I was starting to get ANGRY. I know he was frustrated. It was frustrating seeing it.

Finally an election judge came over and helped him through the WHOLE BALLOT, and he was satisfied with everything. I know because I checked.

And I will KEEP checking too
