Pennsylvania’s Shame

The shame of Pennsylvania keeps piling up. For me it’s personal because I have worked for the county at the polls each election day. I assume they’ll call me like always before the November election. I will decline, saying, “I will not, even for a much-needed $120, participate in the GOP effort to disenfranchise voters.”

The poll workers will be the on-site enforcers, and they are required to take an oath upholding the law in Pennsylvania. That part of the law which requires picture ID issued by the government is outrageous and immoral. It will deny the vote to young and old alike. l’ll have no part in it.

There are more important things than money.

It will deny the vote in urban democratic constituencies while personal vouching will still prevail outstate.

Kudos!

My hat's off to you, Bill!

Finally, I read about a man of integrity.

Wish you'd run!

For office, of course.

Not just away from the ravening hordes.

Love ya,

S

Yeah, but then, if you don't work the polls, the bad guys win: longer lines, poorer quality service, maybe even bad people replacing you. It's a nightmare scenario. Please go work the polls.

You could be part of a poll worker nullification movement, approving every voter that comes your way. That's just the way you interpret the law.
