I was just contacted by a good friend in Granville County about what is turning into, at best a problem, but most likely IMO, a concerted effort to supress Democrats from voting in Granville County. From her message:
They opened the doors at 6:30 and we were 4th and 5th in line at the A-H table. There was a problem with the first guy in line. They got him out of line and I don't know where he went. I think they got him a provisional ballot. The next lady's name was on the list and she voted.
However, they couldn't find person #3's name in the book either. She was upset because she has been a registered voter in Granville County for many years. Next-my turn. My name is not there. Neither is ******* nor *******. WTF? I also told the lady that I have been registered to vote in Granville County for 14 years AND have voted in every election. I know this because I looked it up when you gave me the sample ballot webpage! WTF?
They gave me a provisional ballot but I didn't have time to vote with it because all the booths were full and I had to get to work!! But, as I'm leaving, I hear the lady at the A-H book tell the man running the precinct that the book might as well be thrown out because out of 15 people, only 3 have had their names listed.
OK. I am seething and I want an explanation!!! WTF is up here? I don't know what to do or who to call. I did notice the book with the names in it was more than half the size it was the last time I voted - and very strange since the lower half of Granville County has grown expeonentially since 2004. I know of about 600 new homes within 5 miles of my house. Something stinks!
Indeed. Something stinks, and it ain't the Neuse River. I haven't voted yet at my precient in Wake County, and am now curious at to if I will even be able to...
