Hey! That's My polling place -- I know it well -- 24th and Sarah on the South Side, right?He's definitely closer than 50 feet.There are machines about 10 feet from that door and the registration table is right inside the doorway.A Kraus pollwatcher told me that the "Green Shirts" were inside the polling place that day and you have the proof.Great catch!
this shows nothing
Uh, obviously a Koch supporter walks too close into the voting area. Do you want to negate that point? Until then, you're wrong and I'm right.
There were some activities going on at this particular location that were more dubious that Agent Ska didn't have the opportunity to document..but I had the luxury of dealing with.As area coordinator for this precinct for the Kraus campaign, asked to speak to the judge of elections to review the list of persons who had voted per Section 3 of the Procedures Manual. I was told by the constable that I had to stand back three feet and call out a few names at a time and then receive a "yes" or "no" regarding who had voted. I called the elections department to verify the rules, and was told I could view the list of persons who had voted as long as no one was in the process of voting. I reported this to the judge of elections. She then pointed to a woman mingling across the room and told me to speak to her. This woman, pulled me into an empty hallway, and identified herself as 16th Ward committee person, Mary Lou Collinger, and stated that she had 30 years of experience and knew the rules and wanted to "work with me" and be "fair". So, I nodded, waited till she left the voting area to go chat with the Koch supporters she was obviously with, and then went back to the judge of elections and cited the appropriate rules. From that point on, neither myself, or my poll watchers had a problem viewing the list of voters. The problem was that a democratic committee person was in the voting area and the judge of elections was deferring to her for instructions.
Mary Lou RULES that poll like a queen.
There are two districts that vote there 16-1 and 16-2.One of the times that I poll watched there, they had completely different rules.One insisted that I had to sit at their table to look at the lists and the other that I must NOT sit at the table to view their lists.What a joke.Mary Lou had her own table just for her of course.
