A RESPONSE TO POLL WATCHERS AT VOTING PLACES
The Republican strategy for elections all the way back to
has been to gain an advantage by releasing spurious accusations against their
opponent and to rig the actual voting precinct. Now, along with Republican controlled states
enacting voter ID laws and cutting the time polls are open and the number of voting
places in minority areas; right wing outside groups are attempting to
intimidate voters by sending ‘Poll Watchers’ to minority voting areas. Clinton
I think there should be a response to the presence of Poll Watchers. Once a Democratic citizen has voted he or she should take a place beside the Poll Watcher as a Poll Watcher watcher. As a Poll Watcher watcher we should refuse to leave the voting place unless the Pole Watcher is also required to leave.
If enough people would demonstrate against the Poll Watchers it would receive public attention and this Republican ploy would be shamed into ceasing.
If there is a Poll Watcher where I vote I will become a Poll Watcher watcher.
