I’ll start this thread with my experience today. EMPTY polling place - only workers there at 3:11 PM - our names not on list for our ward, but it was at another table NOT our ward. So we were given a very simple ballot…told to bring our own pen in black or Blue ink, we did but they told us Gel Pens will mess up the machine, so they offered us THEIR pens…which I recognized as gel pens as well - luckily I had a BIC pen and we both used it to vote. Then when the ballot is filled out we were instructed to take the ballot and insert it FACE UP into the scanner machine. The two ladies lingered beside me as if they wanted to see how my ballot was filled in. They kept saying “face up, face up” I told them I understood and just stared at them until they sidled away…still trying to get a peek.
Well all of that was a moot point because the ballot went through the scanner and came out the back and went to the floor…what kind of voting is this?..hardly a secret ballot!
I’m sure there is a way to delete the last scan when a misfeed occurs or some such, so what’s keeping these people from deleting tha last scan when they see a Trump ballot hit the floor? I know I’m being paranoid but that doesn’t mean my concerns are invalid.
I just reported this is PA to 1-866-OUR-VOTE _ Basically I was adamant that there was no secret ballot provision at all.
What about you guys?
PS - this is in Pittsburgh, PA
